Heart Quote

Heart Quote

A noble man compares and estimates himself by an idea which is higher than himself; and a mean man, by one lower than himself. The one produces aspiration; the other ambition, which is the way in which a vulgar man aspires.

Marcus Aurelius

About the Author

Marcus Oh Really Us (From the Latin: Marcus Oh (as in Oh My) Really (are you sure) Us (we are all in this together); Yes I am still alive). I am generally considered of the most important of the Stoic philosophers and always trying to keep ahead of my alter ego Marcus Aurelius, of Gladiator fame. I spend my days trying to understand the difference between a rock and a hard place (isn’t a rock a hard place?). I love to ponder what will be or sometimes … to be or not to be for that matter. I am often referred to as your Humorousness; others just call me goofy/silly, but just don’t call me late for dinner. He loves his food, often heard saying, “where is the nearest buffet?”

    No truer words have been spoken…yet some will ponder this quote for eternities and never understand it…blinded by ambition perhaps? ;)
