Two Quotes

Another Marcus Aurelius, quoted by Philip Caputo in Ghosts of Tsavo:

"When Thou risest reluctantly in the morning, let this thought be present: I am rising to do the work of a human being."

And one from Federico Calboli:
"... Stuff is eaten by dogs, broken by family and friends, sanded down by the wind, frozen by the mountains, lost by the prairie, burnt off by the sun, washed away by the rain. So you are left with dogs, family, friends, sun, rain, wind, prairie and mountains. What more do you want?"
