Philosophical Thought of the Day

"To live each day as though one's last, never flustered, never apathetic, never attitudinizing; here is perfection of character."

- Marcus Aurelius


How close to perfection are you? I know I am very far from it; however, no matter how hard or impossible it seems we should never stop striving to reach perfection. It is given that in our lives we will ultimately fail to reach this goal. This should not deter us though; we should learn to embrace this fact as a challenge to our everyday lives. Remember anyone can show character in the presence of others, but true character is who you are when no one is watching.
