Marcus Aurelius was a Roman Emperor and Stoic. This book analyzes his philosophy, starting with the origins of Stoicism, and its core tenets, and ending with their practical application. A Stoic places virtue above all else, including and especially external pleasures, vices, and indulgences. A Stoic is not cold-hearted, but rather dismisses their hot-blooded emotions in favor of a more rational approach. A Stoic strives to live in accordance with Nature, accepting their own imperfect nature while aiming to cultivate wisdom and virtue. A Stoic uses their money to commit more virtuous acts, and shirks hedonism. This book shows you the world through the eyes of a Stoic Emperor.

“Wickedness can be had in abundance easily: smooth is the road and very nigh she dwells. But in front of virtue the gods immortal have put sweat: long and steep is the path to her and rough at first; but when you reach the top, then at length the road is easy, hard though it was.”
