Always observe how ephemeral and worthless human things are. Pass then through this little space of time conformably to nature, and end thy journey in content, just as an olive falls off when it is ripe, blessing nature who produced it, and thanking the tree on which it grew.
"Marcus Aurelius, in The thoughts of the emperor Marcus Aurelius Antoninus, tr. by G. Long, p.103
