James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
Marcus Aurelius
  He who knows not the world, knows not his own place in it.  1
  Let men see, let them know, a real man, who lives as he was meant to live.  2
  Look within. Within is the fountain of good, and it will ever bubble up, if thou wilt ever dig.  3
  Whatever may happen to thee, it was prepared for thee from all eternity; and the complication of causes was from eternity spinning the thread not only of thy being, but of that which is incident to it.  4
  When thou wishest to give thyself delight, think of the excellencies of those who live with thee; the energy of one, the modesty of another, the liberal kindness of a third.  5
