This quote is actually a modernized, shortened version. Here’s the original from Meditations (PDF):

“…To look about, and with the eyes to follow the course of the stars and planets as though thou wouldst run with them; and to mind perpetually the several changes of the elements one into another. ”

I kind of like the longer version better, but the shortened version works for this piece :)
