Meditations Quotes

“The future or the past that bears down on you, but only the present.

Always the present, which becomes an even smaller thing when isolated in this way and when the mind that cannot bear up under so slender an object is chastened.”


“Things themselves cannot touch the soul, not in the least degree, nor have they admission to the soul nor can they turn or move the soul: it turns and moves itself alone and whatever judgment it may think proper to make, such it makes by remaking for itself the things that present themselves to it.”


“You shouldn't give circumstances the power to rouse anger, for they don't care at all.”
