Nature and purpose...................

"The first thing to do - don't get worked up.  For everything happens according to the nature of all things, and in a short time you'll be nobody and nowhere, even as the great emperors Hadrian and Augustus are now.  The next thing to do - consider the task at hand for what it is, while remembering that your purpose is to be a good human being.  Get straight to doing what nature requires of you, and speak as you see most fitting - with kindness, modesty, and sincerity."

-Marcus Aurelius,  Meditations
