Erase the false impressions from your mind by constantly saying to yourself. I have it in my soul to keep out any evil desire or any kind of disturbance- instead, seeing the true nature of things, I will give them only their due. Always remember this power that nature gave you.


—Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, 8.29—
