Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.
Seneca (4 BC - 65 AD)
Contributed by: Zaady
All things are cause for either laughter or weeping.
He who does not prevent a crime when he can, encourages it.
Laws do not persuade just because they threaten.
Even while they teach, men learn.
We learn not in the school, but in life.
Leisure without literature is death, or rather the burial of a living man -Otium sine litteris mors est et hominis vivi sepultura
Source: Epistualae morales LXXXII.3
Do the best you can . . . enjoy the present . . . rest satisfied with what you have.
Life is neither a good nor an evil; it is simply the place where good and evil exist.
If you would make a man happy, do not add to his possessions but subtract from the sum of his desires.
