Live with men as if God saw you; converse with God as if men heard you.
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?
Life is neither a good nor an evil; it is simply the place where good and evil exist.
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.
