A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on adversity, body, composers, divinity, happiness, laughter, lust, men, and mortality

To see a man fearless in dangers, untainted with lusts, happy in adversity, composed in a tumult, and laughing at all those things which are generally either coveted or feared, all men must acknowledge that this can be from nothing else but a beam of divinity that influences a mortal body.

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on action and mind

An action will not be right unless the will be right; for from thence is the action derived. Again, the will will not be right unless the disposition of the mind be right; for from thence comes the will.

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on adversity, balance, bravery, circumstances, justice, and mind

Just as so many rivers, so many showers of rain from above, so many medicinal springs do not alter the taste of the sea, so the pressure of adversity does not affect the mind of the brave man. For it maintains its balance, and over all that happens it throws its own complexion, because it is more powerful than external circumstances.
