About his father: Devoted to the tradition of his ancestors -Maiorum consuetudini deditus
Seneca (4 BC - 65 AD)
Contributed by: Zaady
Courage leads to heaven; fear leads to death.
Fortune can take away riches, but not courage.
Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands.
Mere life is not a blessing, but to live well.
It does not matter how many books you have, but how good the books are which you have.

It is well to be born either a king or a fool.
Love of bustle is not industry.
Nothing is so bitter that a calm mind cannot find comfort in it.
The greatest remedy for anger is delay.
