reflexion

Post by Al Hadzi » Wed Sep 07, 2011 2:37 am

"1. Begin the morning by saying to thyself, I shall meet with the busy-body, the ungrateful,

arrogant, deceitful, envious, unsocial. All these things happen to them by reason of their ignorance of what is good and

evil. But I who have seen the nature of the good that it is beautiful, and of the bad that it is ugly, and the nature of

him who does wrong, that it is akin to me, not only of the same blood or seed, but that it participates in the same

intelligence and the same portion of the divinity, I can neither be injured by any of them, for no one can fix on me what

is ugly, nor can I be angry with my kinsman, nor hate him, For we are made for co-operation, like feet, like hands, like

eyelids, like the rows of the upper and lower teeth. To act against one another then is contrary to nature; and it is

acting against one another to be vexed and to turn away."
-"The Meditations" (Book Two) Marcus Aurelius

Hmmmmm

I think there is much truth in those words, except from one, which can't be true:
Begin the morning by saying to thyself.....
Beginning my morning I don't speak alot but more or less think...

"Is coffee ready?"

hehe
A nice quote from Socrates:
"By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you'll become happy; if you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher."
"I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food." W. C. Fields

thx for answer MAD

Sometimes I think that I am philosopher

about quote from Aurelius:

"(...)by saying to thyself(...)" - for me it is exactly : "try think"....

My morning....

My personaly hard drive, wakes up quite slowly ( in my brain, of course - but what I can? This is an old one model ... after many experiences - including a car accident ) so I do not think too much early morning...

my first thought is to request/question: half of KINGDOM for next 15 minutes asleep... EXACTLY - EVERY DAY excluding Sundays...

I can not think .. "Is coffee ready?", because I have to make coffee for myself !!!! unfortunately :)

Mad who is a
Spcrates
:) ???

I know that quote:
By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you'll become happy; if you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher.
, but probably said Socrates also :"As to marriage or celibacy, let a man take which course he will, he will be sure to repent."
