The meditations of Marcus Aurelius  Jeremy Collier Translation

An excerpt from the Translator's introduction:
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus was the adopted, son of the Emperor Antoninus Pius, who died in 161 a.d. He had been brought up with the utmost care by his adoptive father, and received the best instruction in poetry and rhetoric, at that time the staples of a liberal education. But his favorite study was philosophy, and when only eleven years old he assumed the philosophers' simple dress, adopted their mode of life; and finding that his inclination was chiefly towards Stoicism, he attached himself to this — the strictest of the philosophic schools. A discipline that bade its followers disregard all bodily comfort, all that is commonly called pleasure, and care for naught but virtue, was indeed a strange training For one destined for the imperial purple, and it hardly appeared to be a fitting preparation for the cares of what was then the one great Empire of the world. True, the Stoics loved to call themselves citizens of the world, and to inculcate that cosmopolitanism that is broader and nobler than mere patriotism ; but while they maintained in theory that the wise man should take part in politics, in practice there was always something in the existing state of things which made his doing so unadvisable. But Marcus Aurelius could not choose his own lot. Destined for the throne already by Emperor Hadrian, associated in the empire even in his adoptive father's lifetime, he could but accept his lot, and in striving to practice the noble principles he had learned, pay to his Stoic teachers the truest tribute.
