Optimism in Adversity

I mean, how else am I gonna keep going, right?

Optimism in adversity
“Optimism in Adversity” (Marcus Aurelius’s Meditations)

But death and life, success and failure, pain and pleasure, wealth and poverty, all these happen to good and bad alike, and they are neither noble nor shameful—and hence neither good nor bad.

Meditations, Marcus Aurelius (translated by Gregory Hays)
