When I am feeling the need of a balsamic read, when I want to spray joy to my distress, when I might feel some disquiet, I re-read some Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, the great Roman emperor. Why this? Because he had a great deal of power, but needed, as every human being, a sort of self comfort. This could he find in his own depth. By reading his words, I feel less lonely. Mission accomplished. My Emperor, with his book on my night table, provides me a soothening effect. I sleep with a stoic dignity.
