Quote of the Day

Never esteem anything as of advantage to thee that shall make thee break thy word or lose thy self-respect. 

- Marcus Aurelius

Ah, Marcus. If only the modern world listened to you more.

I think about the modern world where we have things like the show "Honey Boo Boo," and when I mention how terrible it is for the girl and her family in general, some people counter with "Well, this show is providing financial security for her family" as if that justified it. I'll have to remember this quote to pull out in such cases in the future.

I am making a point of keeping Marcus Aurelius nearby.

He provides needed perspective in a crazy world.
