Marcus Aurelius Quote

During a dark time, I turned to the teachings of the Stoics. This quote from Marcus Aurelius really stuck with me. The juxtaposition of the movements of a dancer and wrestler really spoke to me. Both require full body movement, awareness, and power. Today’s wrestling spectacles are as much dancing as they are actual sporting events, so it’s a more apt metaphor in today’s day and age than in the time this quote was written.
