Review: Meditations

MeditationsMeditations by Marcus Aurelius
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sage advice for the ages. Written as a master to an apprentice, father to a son (and literally, Commodus should have paid attention!). Lots of interesting philosophies here from the 3rd century (is it 3rd? I believe it might be 4th).
