Long ago a old frail man sat on his bed. His dying breath echoed through the chamber and his grandson gave him his last meal.

He said stoically and WITH all his heart:

“MAKE SURE YOU’RE NOT MADE “EMPEROR WITH NO CLOTHES”. AVOID THE IMPERIAL STAIN OF THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS!!!

FIGHT YOUR BUTT EVERY DAMN FOR YOUR PHILOSOPHY BECAUSE IT IS THE ONE THING THAT WILL DEFINE YOU.

REVERE THE GODS AND FIGHT FOR WHAT IS GOOD. LIFE IS SHORT BUT A GOOD CHARACTER SELLS MORE THAN THINE GOLD.”

Tears fell down the eyes of his humble servants as he said this and died.

The frail old man was none other than Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius.
