Marcus Aurelius, from Exhortations to Himself

After you have done something, ask yourself: Was that right to do? Should I be sorry? Soon enough, I will be dead and gone. What more can I do, as long as my action is in accord with that of an intelligent, social animal who lives with the same laws as all the universe? (VIII.2)
