Marcus Aurelius: Unto the Universe

O Universe, from You are all things; to You all things return.

Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus (121–180) was emperor of Rome from 161 to his death in 180. He is considered one of the most important Stoic philosophers. Antoninus’ Meditations, which he wrote for his own self-improvement during military campaigns in Greece, is revered as a classic of literature, philosophy, and spirituality.
