A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on gloom and stillness

When you enter a grove peopled with ancient trees, higher than the ordinary, and shutting out the sky with their thickly intertwined branches, do not the stately shadows of the wood, the stillness of the place, and the awful gloom of this doomed cavern then strike you with the presence of a deity?

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on confession, dreams, and sleep

Why does no one confess his sins? Because he is yet in them. It is for a man who has awoke from sleep to tell his dreams.

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on conscience, fear, good, guilt, honesty, solitude, and world

A good conscience fears no witness, but a guilty conscience is solicitous even in solitude. If we do nothing but what is honest, let all the world know it. But if otherwise, what does it signify to have nobody else know it, so long as I know it myself? Miserable is he who slights that witness.

Conversation has a kind of charm about it, an insinuating and insidious something that elicits secrets from us just like love or liquor.
