Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (121180)
THESE1 are the properties of the rational soul:It seeth itself: it analyseth itself, and maketh itself such as it will; and all things that happen unto it to appear such as it will: the fruit which it beareth it enjoyeth in itself .. and it attaineth its own end wheresoever the limit of life may be fixed.
