To paraphrase Marcus Aurelius, Ruler of the Roman Empire for two decades from 161 to 180 AD.

"If we do our job in a principled way, with diligence, energy, and patience. If we keep ourselves free of distractions, and keep the spirit inside us undamaged (as if we must give it back at any moment). If we can embrace all of this without fear or expectation and can find fulfillment in what we do, in extreme truthfulness, then your life and ours will be happy."
