Another Installment of “Droppin Knowledge with Marcus Aurelius”

hullabaloo

Remember how long you’ve been putting this off, how many extensions the gods gave you, and you didn’t use them. At some point you have to recognize what world it is that you belong to; what power rules it and from what source you spring; that there is a limit to the time assigned to you, and if you don’t use it to free yourself it will be gone and will never return.

(From Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, one badass benevolent emperor.)
