To live well and happy

Such as thy thoughts and ordinary cogitations are, such will thy mind be in time. For the soul doth as it were receive its tincture from the fancies, and the imaginations. Dye it therefore and thoroughly soak it with the assiduity of these cogitations…Wheresoever thou mayest live, there it is in thy power to live well and happy.

– Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, Book Fifth, XV
