Famous quotes containing the words marcus aurelius antoninus, aurelius antoninus, antoninus and/or aurelius:

    To understand the true quality of people, you must look into their minds, and examine their pursuits and aversions.
    Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (121–80)

    Remember how often you have postponed minding your interest, and let slip those opportunities the gods have given you. It is now high time to consider what sort of world you are part of, and from what kind of governor of it you are descended; that you have a set period assigned you to act in, and unless you improve it to brighten and compose your thoughts, it will quickly run off with you, and be lost beyond recovery.
    —Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (121–180)

    To understand the true quality of people, you must look into their minds, and examine their pursuits and aversions.
    —Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (121–80)

    And so we ask for peace for the gods of our fathers, for the gods of our native land. It is reasonable that whatever each of us worships is really to be considered one and the same. We gaze up at the same stars, the sky covers us all, the same universe compasses us. What does it matter what practical systems we adopt in our search for the truth. Not by one avenue only can we arrive at so tremendous a secret.
    —Quintus Aurelius Symmachus (A.D. c. 340–402)
