• Outward objects cannot take hold of the soul, nor force their passage into her, nor set any of her wheels going. No, the impression comes from herself, and it is her own motions which affect her. As for the contingencies of fortune, they are either great or little, according to the opinion she has of her own strength.

    Marcus Aurelius (Emperor of Rome) (1887). “The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius”
