How To Act

- Never under compulsion, out of selfishness, without forethought, with misgivings
- Don't gussy up your thoughts
- No surplus words or unnecessary actions
- Let the spirit in you represent a man, an adult, a citizen, a Roman, a ruler. Taking up his post like a soldier and patiently awaiting his recall from life. Needing no oath or witness.
- Cheerfulness. Without requiring other people's help. Or serenity supplied by others.
- To stand up straight, not straightened.

Marcus Aurelius

I do not normally have the opportunity to consort with royalty, so this could be fun.

AoM Manly Skills

I'm going to assume that other than camaraderie, most of you have joined the Art of Manliness so that you can perhaps learn some skills that you hope would make you a better man.  So in that spirit I am dubbing this thread the official "here is what I learned from AoM" thread! This is the thread where you can post pictures, progress, or stories about manly skills you learned and put to work from AoM! My first thing is I'm going to restore an old Axe Head that I dug up a couple years ago when I…See More
