MARCUS AURELIUS. MEDITATIONS. Book ix. 10.HAVE I done anything charitably? then am I benefited by it. See that this upon all occasions may present itself unto thy mind, and never cease to think of it. What is thy profession? to be good.
MARCUS AURELIUS. MEDITATIONS. Book xi. 4.WHAT wouldst thou have more? Unto him that is a man, thou hast done a good turn: doth not that suffice thee? Must thou be rewarded for it?
MARCUS AURELIUS. MEDITATIONS. Book ix. 43.
The true reward of your generosity is that you become more grateful. The true reward of your honesty is that you possess more integrity. The true reward of your forgiveness is that your compassion deepens. In short, the true reward of any virtue you express through your actions is the discovery and realization of the Sage you truly are. What more than this could you possibly want? - Inspired by Marcus AureliusReplyDelete
