"One begins to lose his hesitation to do unseemly things when one loses his hesitation to speak of them." - Musonius Rufus
When I speak, I should be hesitant to speak of vulgarity and anger. To talk of a need to "beat" another human being. To talk of "sex" as though it is something more than "the rubbing of skin and a spasm" as Marcus put it. To talk of theft, to talk of cheating others. All of this must stop. Today it must stop. "The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts"- Marcus Aurelius. I must keep this at the forefront of my mind today.
