Day 101: April 11 – The World Is A Mirror; Show Thyself In It, And It Will Reflect Thy Image

~ Villa Lante, (1570-1575)  

Wisdom

Always remember the following: what the nature of the Whole is; what my own nature; the relation of this nature to that; what kind of part it is of what kind of Whole; and that no man can hinder your saying and doing at all times what is in accordance with that Nature whereof you are a part.

~ Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Wit

Nature, with equal mind,

Sees all her sons at play,

Sees man control the wind,

The wind sweep man away.

~ Matthew Arnold
