Seneca

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca

We should live as if we were in public view, and think, too, as if someone could peer into the inmost recesses of our hearts-which someone can!

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on friendship, losing, and tears

When one has lost a friend one's eyes should be neither dry nor streaming. Tears, yes, there should be, but not lamentation.

Just where death is expecting you is something we cannot know; so, for your part, expect him everywhere.

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on aim, doubt, emptiness, evil, greatness, happiness, men, philosophy, and thinking

Philosophy takes as her aim the state of happiness...she shows us what are real and what are only apparent evils. She strips men's minds of empty thinking, bestows a greatness that is solid and administers a check to greatness where it is puffed up and all an empty show; she sees that we are left no doubt about the difference between what is great and what is bloated.

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on facts and philosophy

The philosopher: he alone knows how to live for himself. He is the one, in fact, who knows the fundamental thing: how to live.

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on acceptance, caring, intention, mind, occupations, philosophy, and time

When some state or other offered Alexander a part of its territory and half of all its property he told them that 'he hadn't come to Asia with the intention of accepting whatever they cared to give him, but of letting them keep whatever he chose to leave them.' Philosophy, likewise, tells all other occupations: 'It's not my intention to accept whatever time is leftover from you; you shall have, instead, what I reject.' Give your whole mind to her.
