    Page - I made up my mind that I would run the risk, having law and justice with me, rather than take part in your injustice because I feared imprisonment and death. This happened in the days of the democracy. But when the oligarchy of the Thirty was in power, they sent for me and four others into the rotunda, and bade us bring Leon the Salaminian from Salamis, as they wanted to put him to 5/5(2). Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius wrote his famous "Meditations" during his campaigns against the barbarian invaders. Composed among the reeds and mists of the swampy Danube, his private journals record the passing thoughts, maxims, and musings on life and death of a sensitive and humble mind trained in the Stoic philosophy which, to a certain extent, anticipated the development of Christianity/5(50).

    Covering issues such as duty, forgiveness, brotherhood, strength in adversity and the best way to approach life and death, the Meditations have inspired thinkers, poets and politicians since their first publication more than years ago. Today, the book stands as one of the great guides and companions - a cornerstone of Western thought. “Meditations” is the outcome of Aurelius’s greatest tool – making time each day to sit and think with a pen and paper. Do the same, even if you don’t feel emotional or overwhelmed. Think through the challenges you are facing. What are you sensing, thinking or feeling? What about the other people involved?

      ― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations. 8. “Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.” ― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations. 9. “The best revenge is to be unlike him who performed the injury.” ― . Old and young, rich and poor, leaders and followers, moral and depraved, these individuals were all placed into Scripture to teach us lessons about life. These Bible study meditations reflect the story of sin and salvation, life, death, mercy and grace. Real People, written by author Reynold Kremer, presents devotions on fascinating Bible.
