Marcus Aurelius quote on atheism

This appears to be the correct version of the often misquoted Marcus Aurelius.

Marcus Aurelius quote about God

“Now departure from the world of men is nothing to fear, if gods exist: because they would not involve you in any harm. If they do not exist, or if they have no care for humankind, then what is life to me in a world devoid of gods, or devoid of providence? But they do exist, and they do care for humankind: and they have put it absolutely in man’s power to avoid falling into the true kinds of harm.”

—Marcus Aurelius, Meditations 2.11
