In his Phenomenology of Spirit , Hegel attacks the preoccupation with the inner self as a severing, fatalistic barrier to consciousness. A philosophy that reduces all states of harm or injustice to emotional states "could only appear on the scene in a time of universal fear and bondage.

Clarke concurs in his historical work on philosophical ideas, The Roman Mind, where he states "[p]olitical liberty could hardly flourish after so many years of despotism and the indifference to public affairs which it bred. And philosophy fostered the same spirit.

The Emperor's Handbook

Be like a rocky promontory against which the restless surf continually pounds; it stands fast while the churning sea is lulled to sleep at its feet. I hear you say, "How unlucky that this should happen to me! Say instead, "How lucky that I am not broken by what has happened and am not afraid of what is about to happen. The same blow might have struck anyone, but not many would have absorbed it without capitulation or complaint.

Hicks If thou art pained by any external thing, it is not this that disturbs thee, but thy own judgment about it. And it is in thy power to wipe out this judgment now. George Long A cucumber is bitter.

Throw it away. There are briars in the road. Turn aside from them.

This is enough. Do not add, "And why were such things made in the world? George Long Put an end once for all to this discussion of what a good man should be, and be one. A mere name at most—and even that is just a sound, an echo. The things we want in life are empty, stale, trivial. Gregory Hays Never regard something as doing you good if it makes you betray a trust or lose your sense of shame or makes you show hatred, suspicion, ill-will or hypocrisy or a desire for things best done behind closed doors.

Gregory Hays Not to feel exasperated or defeated or despondent because your days aren't packed with wise and moral actions. But to get back up when you fail, to celebrate behaving like a human—however imperfectly—and fully embrace the pursuit you've embarked on.

Gregory Hays Let opinion be taken away, and no man will think himself wronged. If no man shall think himself wronged, then is there no more any such thing as wrong. George Long [ Maxwell Staniforth Shame on the soul, to falter on the road of life while the body still perseveres.

Maxwell Staniforth Whatever happens to you has been waiting to happen since the beginning of time. The twining strands of fate wove both of them together: your own existence and the things that happen to you.

Gregory Hays In your actions, don't procrastinate. In your conversations, don't confuse. In your thoughts, don't wander.

The Emperor's Handbook

In your soul, don't be passive or aggressive. In your life, don't be all about business. For everything happens according to the nature of all things, and in a short time you'll be nobody and nowhere even as the great emperors Hadrian and Augustus are now.

The next thing to do--consider carefully the task at hand for what it is, while remembering that your purpose is to be a good human being. Get straight to doing what nature requires of you, and speak as you see most just and fitting--with kindness, modesty, and sincerity.

Let me see to it. But I will see to it that I won't be found doing or saying anything contemptible. What if someone hates me? Let me see to that. But I will see to it that I'm kind and good-natured to all, and prepared to show even the hater where they went wrong.

Not in a critical way, or to show off my patience, but genuinely and usefully. Death hangs over thee. While thou livest, while it is in thy power, be good.

George Long Of the life of man the duration is but a point. Haines A person who doesn't know what the universe is, doesn't know who they are. A person who doesn't know their purpose in life doesn't know who they are or what the universe is. A person who doesn't know any of these things doesn't know why they are here.

So what to make of people who seek or avoid the praise of those who have no knowledge of where or who they are? And in most cases you should be helped by the saying of Epicurus , that pain is never unbearable or unending, so you can remember these limits and not add to them in your imagination.

Remember too that many common annoyances are pain in disguise, such as sleepiness, fever and loss of appetite. When they start to get you down, tell yourself you are giving in to pain. Stop monkeying around! Why are you troubled? The one responsible? Take a good look. But a look for curiosity's sake into this new translation has led me to read it all with genuine pleasure. The philosophical observations are the same but the tone is manly and there is a subtle and agreeable variety as the subject changes from self to the world and to the gods.

Americans should read Marcus -- and this new edition now makes it a joy. By clicking 'Sign me up' I acknowledge that I have read and agree to the privacy policy and terms of use. Must redeem within 90 days.
