„If you are pained by external things, it is not they that disturb you, but your own judgement of them. And it is in your power to wipe out that judgement now.“

—  Marcus Aurelius, livre Pensées pour moi-même

Variante: If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.

„Persevere then until thou shalt have made these things thy own“

—  Marcus Aurelius, livre Pensées pour moi-même

X, 31
Meditations (c. 121–180 AD), Book X
Contexte: What matter and opportunity [for thy activity] art thou avoiding? For what else are all these things, except exercises for the reason, when it has viewed carefully and by examination into their nature the things which happen in life? Persevere then until thou shalt have made these things thy own, as the stomach which is strengthened makes all things its own, as the blazing fire makes flame and brightness out of everything that is thrown into it.

„He who follows reason in all things is both tranquil and active at the same time, and also cheerful and collected.“

—  Marcus Aurelius, livre Pensées pour moi-même

X, 12
Meditations (c. 121–180 AD), Book X
Contexte: What need is there of suspicious fear, since it is in thy power to inquire what ought to be done? And if thy seest clear, go by this way content, without turning back: but if thy dost not see clear, stop and take the best advisers. But if any other things oppose thee, go on according to thy powers with due consideration, keeping to that which appears to be just. For it is best to reach this object, and if thou dost fail, let thy failure be in attempting this. He who follows reason in all things is both tranquil and active at the same time, and also cheerful and collected.

„There are three relations [between thee and other things]:“

—  Marcus Aurelius, livre Pensées pour moi-même

VIII, 27
Meditations (c. 121–180 AD), Book VIII
Contexte: There are three relations [between thee and other things]: the one to the body which surrounds thee; the second to the divine cause from which all things come to all; and the third to those who live with thee.
