In the year 170 at night in his tent on the front lines of the war in Germania
Marcus Aurelius the emperor of the Roman Empire

We stole a few seconds to himself during the game
Ignoring the Carnage in the floor of the Colosseum below
The exact location is not important
What matters is that this man
Don’t today is the last of the five good emperors

Not to an audience or for publication but to himself
For himself
And what he wrote is undoubtedly one of history’s most effective formulas for overcoming every negative situation

Almost every thought could
In some form or another be found in the writings of his mentors and idols

Patience courage Melody resourcefulness Justice
The power He he’ll never seem to go to his head
Neither did the Strasser burden
He rarely Rose to excess or anger
And never to hatred or bitterness
Has Matthew Arnold the SAS for marking 1863
And Marcus we find a man
Who held the highest and most powerful station in the world
And the universal verdict of the people around him
