Quote of the Day: Revenge

“The best revenge is not to be like your enemy.”

Marcus Aurelius

Marcus Aurelius Antoninus is perhaps my favourite philosopher, he was the Roman emperor from 161 to 180 and was known as the last of the Five Good Emperors. He is known for his stoic philosophy. This quote is not so much about proportionality or justice, but it says to me “be the better person”. Only by raising the standards in ourselves, do we influence and raise the standards in others.

Thank you for reading my writings. If you’d like to, you can buy me a coffee for just £1 and I will think of you while writing my next post! Just hit the link below…. (thanks in advance)
