The most dangerous moment comes with victory.
It is not set speeches at the moment of battle that render soldiers brave.
Our hour is marked, and no one can claim a moment of life beyond what fate has predestined.
In war there is but one favorable moment; the great art is to seize it!
Sometimes a single battle decides everything and sometimes, too, the slightest circumstance decides the issue of a battle. There is a moment in every battle at which the least manoeuvre is decisive and gives superiority, as one drop of water causes overflow.
A new-born Government must shine and astonish - the moment it loses its Ã©clat it falls.
Remember that a man, a true man, never hates. His rages and his bad moods never last beyond the present moment-like electric shocks.
The fate of a battle is the result of a moment, of a thought: the hostile forces advance with various combinations, they attack each other and fight for a certain time; the critical moment arrives, a mental flash decides, and the least reserve accomplishes the object.
There is only one favorable moment in war; talent consists in knowing how to seize it.
Many a one commits a reprehensible action, who is at bottom an honourable man, because man seldom acts upon natural impulse, but from some secret passion of the moment which lies hidden and concealed within the narrowest folds of his heart.
The greatest danger occurs at the moment of victory
The reason most people fail instead of succeed is they trade what they want most for what they want at the moment.
External things are not the problem. It's your assessment of them. Which you can erase right now.
He who lives in harmony with himself lives in harmony with the universe. Marcus Aureliu
All things from eternity are of like forms and come round in circle.
How ridiculous and how strange to be surprised at anything which happens in life
Remember that all is opinion.
Change your attitude to the things that bother you and you will be aware of them.
No longer let thy breathing only act in concert with the air which surrounds thee, but let thy intelligence also now be in harmony with the intelligence which embraces all things. For the intelligent power is no less diffused in all parts and pervades all things for him who is willing to draw it to
The blazing fire makes flames and brightness out of everything thrown into it.
Do not be wise in words - be wise in deeds.
The man who has a house everywhere has a home nowhere
Do you see what little is required of a man to live a well-tempered and god-fearing life? Obey these precepts, and the gods will ask nothing more.
When you have been compelled by circumstances to be disturbed in any manner, quickly return to yourself, and do not continue out of tune longer than the compulsion lasts. You will have increasing control over your own harmony by continually returning to it.
Let not your mind run on what you lack as much as on what you have already.
The offender needs pity, not wrath; those who must needs be corrected, should be treated with tact and gentleness; and one must be always ready to learn better. 'The best kind of revenge is, not to become like unto them.'
No one can lose either the past or the future - how could anyone be deprived of what he does not possess? ... It is only the present moment of which either stands to be deprived: and if this is all he has, he cannot lose what he does not have.
This is moral perfection: to live each day as though it were the last; to be tranquil, sincere, yet not indifferent to one's fate.
Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one. Marcus Aureliu
It were well to die if there be gods, and sad to live if there be none.
Because a thing is difficult for you, do not therefore suppose it to be beyond mortal power. On the contrary, if anything is possible and proper for man to do, assume that it must fall within your own capacity.
Body. Soul. Mind. Sensations: the body. Desires: the soul. Reasoning: the mind.
