Second Week of May-Lessons from Marcus Aurelius

What Marcus Aurelius learned from:

His Mother. Live simply-not in the least like you are rich.

First Teacher. Do your own work, mind your own business, have no time for slanderers.

Rusticus. Behave in a conciliatory way when people who have angered or annoyed you want to make up.

Sextus. Be kind. Get along with everybody. Share your company. Display expertise without pretense.

Brother. Love family, truth and justice. Help others, and share. Do not be a pessimist.

Maximus. Have self control and resist distractions. Optimism in adversity-especially illness. Stay in balance with dignity and grace. Do your job without whining. Always act without malice.

Adopted Father. Compassion. Listen to anyone who contributes to the public good. Never exhibit rudeness, lose control or turn violent.
