From Marcus Aurelius 11.23

”27. The Pythagorean tell us to look at the stars at daybreak. To remind ourselves how they complete the tasks assigned to them — always the same tasks, the same way. And their order, purity, nakedness. Stars wear no concealment.”

Excerpt From: Emperor of Rome Marcus Aurelius. “Meditations.”

Book # XI

“The Pythagoreans Were Wont Betimes in the Morning the First Thing they did, to look up unto the heavens, to put themselves in mind of them who constantly and invariably did perform their task: as also to put themselves in mind of orderliness, or good order, and of purity, and of naked simplicity. For no star or planet hath any cover before it.”
