Like a Rock

Marcus Aurelius, Meditations 4.49 (tr. George Long):
Be like the promontory against which the waves continually break, but it stands firm and tames the fury of the water around it.

Ὅμοιον εἶναι τῇ ἄκρᾳ, ᾗ διηνεκῶς τὰ κύματα προσρήσσεται· ἡ δὲ ἕστηκε καὶ περὶ αὐτὴν κοιμίζεται τὰ φλεγμήναντα τοῦ ὕδατος.
