Marcus Aurelius Quote

You see how few things you have to do to live a satisfying and reverent life? If you can manage this, that's all even the gods can ask of you.


Thou seest how few be the things, the which if a man has at his command his life flows gently on and is divine. - Meditations (c. 161–180 CE) - Book II (Hays translation)
