One of the most significant books ever written by a head of State, the Meditations are a collection of philosophical thoughts by the Emperor Marcus Aurelius (121 - 180 ce). Covering issues such as duty, forgiveness, brotherhood, strength in adversity and the best way to approach life and death, the Meditations have inspired thinkers, poets and politicians since their first publication more than 500 years ago. Today, the book stands as one of the great guides and companions - a cornerstone of Western thought.

Makes you think about everything that is similar to todays generation and his. Anyhow the idea of philosophy is that never believe blindly to what anyone is saying, so this book made me think about how world would look if it would be by his philosophy.
