Be mindful today #22 Your Last Act

Comparisons are many between Marcus Aurelius quotes and those associated with Buddhism. Here’s one that surely highlights a direct similarity between Stoics and Buddhists in terms of mindfulness.

“Perfection of character is this: to live each day as if it were your last, without frenzy, without apathy, without pretence. Do every act of your life as though it were the very last act of your life.”

Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Have you ever made the comparison or read Meditations by Marcus Aurelius?
