Wisdom of the Ages 199

“She is more beautiful and successful than me. So does she bear life’s setbacks with greater composure?’
and
‘Why would one want the applause of fools?’
Sayings attributed to Marcus Aurelius, born in AD121.
I have found the second one particularly pertinent in everyday working life.
The things I have found in real life is, if you go around looking worried and grumpy people will treat you just like that, Smile, no matter what obstacle is in your way.
Or as Marcus says
‘Anger and indignation against things which cross you will but make you a laughing stock.’
I think he says it better than me”
