Book Ten


Marcus explores the idea of Truth, Modesty and Goodness. He encourages us to teach others as kinsmen (or to die), and where appropriate, to collect ourselves. He also shares a joke:

“What is it that is slow, and yet quick? Merry, and yet grave?
He that in all things doth follow reason for his guide”
