Marcus Aurelius II

Meditations by Marcus Aurelius has been a treasured companion at bath time; some have rubber ducks, some have Mozart and Bach, others have real, live dolls, but I get my with ancient philosophy and tsumego. Alas, I have finished Meditations, but I do have another quote:

"Socrates used to say: 'What do you want? To have souls of rational or irrational beings?'
'What rational beings, sound or inferior?'
'What don't you seek them?'
'Because we have them.'
'Why then do you fight and disagree?'"
