A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on adversity, fortune, habits, justice, power, prosperity, time, and trust

Cling tooth and nail to the following rule: Not to give in to adversity, never to trust prosperity, and always to take full note of fortune's habit of behaving just as she pleases, treating her as if she were actually going to do everything it is in her power to do. Whatever you have been expecting for some time comes as less of a shock.
