A collection of his ruminations by Marcus Aurelius'  a Roman emperor born 4-26-121 AD who died on 3-17-180 AD age 61 which was quite elderly in those days.

One of his meditations is a good one for these days,  "You have the power of your mind - not outside events."  Which is funny if you remember that most of us are not allowed to be outside.

In more recent times, I have read in Dear Ann or Abby or Someone that when you wake up in the morning is the time to make up your mind about your day.  "I will have a good day today." and get up and have one.  Marcus says so.

If others console you with the phrase, "This, too, will pass" ask the soother if it has to pass like a kidney stone?
