THE STOICS : MARCUS AURELIUS

into being for thy sake, prescribed for thy good, and had reference to thee from the beginning of things, when it was interwoven with thy destiny among the primeval causes. And the second is, that every visitation of the individual is, to that power which governs the universe, a co-factor in its prosperity and perfection-nay, of its very continuance. For the integrity of the whole is impaired if a man break any link in the unity and coherence of either part or cause. And to murmur at aught that is, and to strive to undo it, is to do all thou canst to sever this chain.

Death
THE man who counts nothing good save that which comes in due season, who recks not whether the sum of his actions according to right reason shall be greater or less, and who cares not a jot whether he has viewed the universe for
many years or few, cannot look on death as a thing of terror.
Friend, thou hast been a citizen in this great city ; and what matters it whether for five years or three ? The law is the same for us all. Where is the hardship, then, if it be no tyrant's stroke, no unjust judge, that sends thee into exile, but the same Nature that brought thee hither, even as the master of the show dismisses the mummer that he put on the stage ?-'But my role is unfinished. There are five acts and only the three are gone !'-Thy words are true ; but in life three acts are all the play. For He decrees it shall end, who was once the author of thy existence, and now of thy dissolution. But thou art guiltless of both. Then depart at peace with all men ; for He who bids thee go is at peace with thee.
But take heed thou depart not in anger, but as thou hast lived, in all friendship, goodwill, and charity ;-not as one who is plucked away by violence ; but rather, as one whose body and soul a kindly death painlessly divorces, so do thou quit the things of this life. For Nature j oined thee to these and made thee one with them, and now she unties the knot.-And I
