Seneca

4 BC - 65 AD

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on deception, faith, and understanding

It goes far toward making a man faithful to let him understand that you think him so; and he that does but suspect I will deceive him, gives me a sort of right to do so.

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca

The stomach begs and clamors, and listens to no precepts. And yet it is not an obdurate creditor; for it is dismissed with small payment if you give it only what you owe, and not as much as you can.

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.

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on age, extremism, life, love, and pleasure

As for old age, embrace and love it. It abounds with pleasure, if you know how to use it. The gradually (I do not say rapidly) declining years are amongst the sweetest in a man's life; and, I maintain, that even where they have reached the extreme limit, they have their pleasure still.
