it was interesting
A classic work of personal philosophy that has not aged a day since it was written by Emperor Marcus Aurelius between 170 and 180 CE.
Meditations is thought provoking and gives you a chance to rationalize yourself and the world around you without judgement. Full of well written, powerful statements that are still true to this day. Meditations is a guiding light to center yourself in a time where the world is driven by desires, fame, anger, and abundance. Highly recommend!
The most remarkable treatise on how to live ones life, whether it be on your actions or responding to the actions of others. One of the most remarkable books that Ive ever read- hands down. This is the best audio version of it as well.
This is undoubtedly one of the best books ever written! Best advice for young and old in a perfectly straightforward manner.
This narrator rocks. I love setting the timer at night and just falling asleep to this book. He says a lot of good things.
Concise, relevant, clear. This book lays out the heart of stoic philosophy and is a guide for living your life as a stoic.
I started to add bookmarks until I realized that I was bookmarking everything in the book. Fantastic narrator as well, thank you.
The audiobook reading was pitch-perfect. I could listen to this guy speaking Stoic philosophy all day.
Not everything in Aurelius's Meditations will resonate with everyone, but even if you are not interested in Stoicism per se, this is still a great philosophical and literary classic that is worth reading in its own right, for insights as to why an emperor from two thousand years ago is still so highly regarded.
