Seneca

4 BC - 65 AD

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.

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

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.
