A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on aim, doubt, emptiness, evil, greatness, happiness, men, philosophy, and thinking

Philosophy takes as her aim the state of happiness...she shows us what are real and what are only apparent evils. She strips men's minds of empty thinking, bestows a greatness that is solid and administers a check to greatness where it is puffed up and all an empty show; she sees that we are left no doubt about the difference between what is great and what is bloated.

Seneca (4 BC - 65 AD)
