Seneca

4 BC - 65 AD

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca

‘What progress have I made? I am beginning to be my own friend.’ That is progress indeed. Such a people will never be alone and you may be sure he is a friend to all.

Nothing, to my way of thinking, is a better proof of a well ordered mind than a man’s ability to stop just where he is and pass some time in his own company.

A Quote by Seneca on knowledge, learning, and independence

It is one thing to remember, another to know.  To remember is to safeguard something entrusted to the memory.  But to know is to make each thing one's own, not depend on the text and always to look back to the teacher.  "Zeno said this, Cleanthes said this."  Let there be space between you and the book.
