“The point is that you do not love yourself — otherwise you would love both your own nature and her purpose for you. Other men love their own pursuit and absorb themselves in its performance to the exclusion of bath and food […] these people, when impassioned, give up food and sleep for the promotion of their pursuits.” — Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, Para 3, Book 5.
