THE THOUGHTS

OF

THE EMPEROR

MARCUS AURELIUS ANTONINUS.


TRANSLATED BY GEORGE LONG.


Coin of Marcus Aurelius


BOSTON:
LITTLE, BROWN, AND COMPANY.
1889.


PREFACE.

————

I have carefully revised the Life and Philosophy of Antoninus, in which I have made a few corrections, and added a few notes.

I have also made a few alterations in the translation where I thought that I could approach nearer to the author's meaning; and I have added a few notes and references.

There still remain difficulties which I cannot remove, because the text is sometimes too corrupt to be understood, and no attempt to restore the true readings could be successful.

George Long.
