These spiritual reflections of Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius (AD 121-180) show a leader trying to make sense of himself and the universe, and cover diverse topics such as the question of virtue, human rationality and the nature of the gods. In developing his personal beliefs, Aurelius created one of the greatest works of philosophy: a series of wise and practical aphorisms that have been consulted by statesmen, thinkers and everyday philosophers for almost two thousand years.

The verses/meditations in this book can bring forth motivation and morality within many readers by referring to ancient wisdom that is perfectly applicable in our contemporary time.
Can be rather abstract, however any reader can gain insight about themselves through the words of Marcus Aurelius. - James (QBD)
