[26] Emulate, not those who have most widely extended their dominion, but those who have made best use of the power they already possess;1 and believe that you will enjoy the utmost happiness, not if you rule over the whole world at the price of fears and dangers and baseness, but rather if, being the man you should be, and continuing to act as at the present moment, you set your heart on moderate achievements and fail in none of them.
