From Marcus Aurelius Book VI.49

“49. Thou art not aggrieved, art thou, at being so many pounds in weight and not three hundred? Then why be aggrieved if thou hast only so many years to live and no more? For as thou art contented with the amount of matter allotted thee, so be content also with the time.”

Book # 6

  • “49. It doesn’t bother you that you only weigh x or y pounds and not three hundred. Why should it bother you that you only x or y years to love and not more?You accept the limits placed on your body. Accept those placed on your time.”
Marcus Aurelius (Loeb Classical Library)
