The bond.......................................

37.  To see the things of the present moment is to see all that is now, all that has been since time began, and all that shall be unto the world's end; for all things are of one kind and one form.

38.  Think often of the bond that unites all things in the universe, and their dependence upon one another.  All are, as it were, interwoven, and in consequence linked in mutual affection;  because their orderly succession is brought about by the operation of the currents of tension, and the unity of all substance.

39.  Adapt yourself to the environment in which your lot has been cast, and show true love to the fellow-mortals with whom destiny has surrounded you.

-Marcus Aurelius,  Meditations,  Book VI
