The Chain That Links Heaven and Earth

Doctors keep their scalpels and other instrument handy, for emergency. Keep your philosophy ready too – to understand heaven and earth. In everything you do , even the smallest thing, remember the chain that links them. Nothing earthy succeeds by ignoring heaven, nothing heavenly by ignoring the earth.

Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
