Wisdom

Do not trouble yourself, make yourself simple. Does a man do wrong? He does wrong to himself. Has some chance befallen you? It is well; from Universal Nature, from the beginning, all that befalls was determined for you and the thread was spun. The sum of the matter is this: life is short; the present must be turned to profit with reasonableness and right. Be sober without effort.

~ Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Wit

To be natural is such a very difficult pose to keep up.

~ Oscar Wilde
