So it seems I’m not very original…

You remember my wager, which I titled “Libby Anne’s Wager“? Apparently Marcus Aurelius said, well, just about exactly the same thing (as in, uncannily so):

Edit 1: It turns out that the above is not a direct quotation, but rather a condensed summary of some of Marcus Aurelius’ thoughts and writings. Many thanks to my observant readers!

Edit 2: Apparently Marcus Aurelius might not have actually said anything like that. Oops! Oh well, whoever said it first, it wasn’t me!
