If a man is mistaken, instruct him kindly and show him his error.  But if thou art not able, blame thyself, or blame not even thyself.   (Book Ten)

Best delete the post in the interest of purity.

Done.

Purity, with all its connotations, perceived kindnesses and historical deficits has been maintained...

“If someone is able to show me that what I think or do is not right, I will happily change, for I seek the truth, by which no one was ever truly harmed. It is the person who continues in his self-deception and ignorance who is harmed.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Wouldn’t be the first time,😳,  then again famous quotes don’t all have to come from the 2nd century 🤓

True, but all quotes from Marcus Aurelius must come from Marcus Aurelius. 

I apologize, my intent was obviously not clear from the title.  I like Aurelius and think there is enough wise things he said to support the entire thread.

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”
― Marcus Aurelius

“Run down the list of those who felt intense anger at something: the most famous, the most unfortunate, the most hated, the most whatever: Where is all that now? Smoke, dust, legend…or not even a legend. Think of all the examples. And how trivial the things we want so passionately are.”

The opinion of 10,000 men is of no value if none of them know anything about the subject.
