As for the herd of mankind, he [i.e. the rational man] is too well acquainted with their conduct with their conduct both in private and in public; their infamous connections, the dissipation of their days and the revels of their nights. He cannot therefore be very ambitious of the praise or approbation of such capricious people, who are often at a loss to please themselves.

Marcus Aurelius
