    " Dude was a legend. Stoic wisdom for winners. Kind of like a religious text in the sense that you don't ever really "finish" reading it. "

    " Marcus-Aurelius was the head honcho almost 2000 years ago and he found time to write down a few profound thoughts. The language is a bit bizarre at times but it is most definitely a classic. "

    " I don't know that anything has informed my thinking more than this - really. I'll write a proper review, but for now, I can't say anything more than this gets my highest recommendations. "

    " I turned to this book when I was very stressed out, and also examining something called mindfulness, the Buddhist counterpart to Stoicism. Meditations won't offer you behavioral help, but it offers honesty, passion, and should you delve into it yourself with honesty and passion, ataraxia. "

Marcus Aurelius (AD 121–180) was a Roman emperor and Stoic philosopher. Though his reign was threatened by war and disease, he successfully held the empire together and is associated with the Golden Age of Rome. His Meditations has long been considered one of the greatest books of the era and remains a cornerstone of Western philosophical appreciation of Stoicism.
