The mind should be allowed some relaxation, that it may return to its work all the better for the rest.
Seneca (4 BC - 65 AD)
Contributed by: Zaady
I persist on praising not the life I lead, but that which I ought to lead. I follow it at a mighty distance, crawling.
Life is a gift of the immortal Gods, but living well is the gift of philosophy.
This is the reason we cannot complain of life: it keeps no one against his will.
I will govern my life and thoughts as if the whole world were to see the one and to read the other, for what does it signify to make anything a secret to my neighbor, when to God, who is the searcher of our hearts, all our privacies are open?
As long as you live, keep learning how to live.
An honest heart possesses a kingdom.
Ignorance is the cause of fear. -Timendi causa est nescire
In every good man a God doth dwell.
