Meditations XIII

From Marcus Aurelius' "Meditations":

“...all these things, which now thou seest, shall within a very little while be changed, and be no more: and ever call to mind, how many changes and alterations in the world thou thyself hast already been an eyewitness of in thy time. This world is mere change, and this life, opinion.”

As the Greeks before him said, "Everything changes, nothing remains the same." I strive never to attach myself too strongly to anything that might not be around for too long. Think carefully before investing too much of yourself into anything, but once you find something you consider worthy of investing yourself in, give it your all!
