"Here’s a humbling exercise, whenever you read an old book that speaks about contemporary events, look at the names. 

How many of these people--who were important enough to warrant a mention at the time--seem important now, decades or centuries later? 

How many of them have you even heard of? 

How silly does the author’s reverence seem? 

How ridiculous does their assumption--that future readers would obviously know who and what they were talking about--that they didn’t bother to provide much context, seem?

 “Waste No More Time Arguing What A Good Man Should Be. Be One.” 

These words, written by Marcus Aurelius nearly two millennia ago, cut to the core of what it means to live a good life - it isn’t what we say that defines our character, it’s what we do.

We can have endless discussions about what’s right and wrong.

Only one guarantees an impact.
