Marc Aurel on getting up


I will frame and hang this quote of Marc Aurel’s “Meditations” (Book V, see below) next to my desk. Just in time, before the sleepy winter-time starts. Typed on my Italian Olivetti 22, that did what it was born and brought forth into this world.

"In the morning when thou findest thyself unwilling to rise, consider with thyself presently, it is to go about a man's work that I am stirred up. Am I then yet unwilling to go about that, for which I myself was born and brought forth into this world?"
