This review is from: Meditations (Kindle Edition)
At the same time as reading the meditations I also read Frankl's "Man's search for meaning" hoping to find inspiration in both books. But to my own surprise I did take much more from the meditations that have been written about 2000 years ago than from Frankl's reiteration of his and other people's holocaust survival. Somehow Marc Aurel has managed to come to many conclusions that are extremely applicable to our "modern" day and age. His meditations show his mindset to be that of a very peaceful and intelligent man, whom I would have been very glad to know. I don't shy away of saying that he is a perfect role model of what I once hope to be: someone who has come to terms with life, death and the inexplicability of his universe.
