Context: Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles. Context: In the Will work and acquire, and thou hast chained the wheel of Chance, and shalt sit hereafter out of fear from her rotations.

Do not believe it. Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles.
— Marcus Aurelius Emperor of Ancient Rome 121 - 180
