Gentle and Grave

“…to be master of oneself, and never waver in one’s resolve; be cheerful when ill, or in any predicament; the example of character marked by a harmonious blend of gentleness and gravity; to set work on the task without complaint. And the confidence he inspired in everyone that what he was saying was just what he thought, and that whatever he did was done with no bad intent”

Facebook reminded me that I read this passage from Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations two years ago. It gave me goosebumps then and it still inspires me today.
