Daily Words of Wisdom #4

Today’s words of wisdom are brought to you by Marcus Aurelius:

Ὅμοιον εἶναι τῇ ἄκρᾳ,  διηνεκῶς τὰ κύματα προσρήσσεται:
 δὲ ἕστηκε καὶ περὶ αὐτὴνκοιμίζεται τὰ φλεγμήναντα τοῦ ὕδατος. (4.49)

“Be like the headland against which the waves break and break; it stands firm, until presently the watery tumult around it subsides once more to rest…” (4.49)
