I want to begin a new Wednesday tradition called “WOW.” Each Wednesday I will try to share some timeless “Words of Wisdom” (WOW) from across the centuries and various traditions.
Marcus Aurelius (121-180 AD) – Roman Emperor & Stoic philosopher
“First thing every morning tell yourself: today I am going to meet a busybody, an ingrate, a bully, a liar, a schemer, and a boor. Ignorance of good and evil has made them what they are. But I know that the good is by nature beautiful and the bad ugly, and I know that these wrong-doers are by nature my brothers, not by blood or breeding, but by being similarly endowed with reason and sharing in the divine.”
