The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius offers timeless guidance for a turbulent world. Much like us in this present age, the Roman Emperor and Stoic Philosopher Marcus Aurelius lived through a world-altering pandemic, call the Antonine Plage that devastated ancient Rome. Renowned for his principled leadership, his writings are a cornerstone of Stoic philosophy that embraced as its core principles of collaboration, rationality and striving for the good of all people. His reign in the 2nd century was part of the age known as "Pax Romana" Peaceful Rome, which saw very little strife throughout the Empire.
Marcus kept private notes detailing his philosophy on life and leadership. This collection of those private notes is filled with insights on responding well to hardship both in thought and in action. His writings are a cornerstone of Stoic philosophy, embraced by leaders throughout history and across the world. George Long's elegant 1862 translation balances accessibility while preserving the classic tone of the text.
''Motions and changes are continually renewing the world, just as the uninterrupted course of time is always renewing the infinite duration of ages.''--Marcus Aurelius

(121 - 189 AD)
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus was Roman emperor from 161 to 180 AD and a Stoic philosopher. He was a member of the Nerva–Antonine dynasty, the last of the rulers later known as the Five Good Emperors and the last emperor of the Pax Romana, an age of relative peace, calm, and stability for the Roman Empire lasting from 27 BC to 180 AD. He served as Roman consul in 140, 145, and 161.
(1800 - 1879)
He was one of the founders (1830), and for twenty years an officer, of the Royal Geographical Society; an active member of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, for which he edited the quarterly Journal of Education (1831–1835) as well as many of its text-books; the editor (at first with Charles Knight, afterwards alone) of the Penny Cyclopaedia and of Knight's Political Dictionary; and a member of the Society for Central Education instituted in London in 1837.
He contributed the Roman law articles to Smith's Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities and wrote also for the companion dictionaries of Biography and Geography. He is remembered, however, mainly as the editor of the Bibliotheca Classica series—the first serious attempt to produce scholarly editions of classical texts with English commentaries—to which he contributed the edition of Cicero's orations (1851–1862).
