Thought for the day, Monday 24th January

“If you were to live three thousand years, or even thirty thousand, remember that the sole life that you can lose is that which you are living at the moment; and furthermore, that you can have no other life except the one that you lose. This means that the longest life and the shortest life amount to the same thing. For the passing minute is every person’s equal possession, but what has once gone is not ours. Our loss, therefore, is limited to that one fleeting instant, since no one can lose what is already past, nor yet what is still to come – for how can we be deprived of what we do not possess?”

Marcus Aurelius
