Meditations by Marcus Aurelius
Considered one of the most important pieces of literature. Originally written in Greek, the book has survived centuries because its wisdom is as relevant today as it was when it was written. Spanning from doubt and despair to conviction and exaltation, they cover such diverse topics as the question of virtue, human rationality, the nature of the gods and the values of leadership. But while the Meditations were composed to provide personal consolation, in developing his beliefs Marcus also created one of the greatest of all works of philosophy: A series of wise and practical aphorisms that have been consulted and admired by statesmen, thinkers and ordinary readers for almost two thousand years.
