Lucius Seneca

  • Victor Deshhas quotedlast year
    I advise you to do is, not to be unhappy before the crisis comes; since it may be that the dangers before which you paled as if they were threatening you, will never come upon you; they certainly have not yet come.
  • Sylashas quoted9 months ago
    It is not the man who has too little, but the man who craves more, that is poor.
  • Sylashas quoted8 months ago
    Do you suppose that you alone have had this experience? Are you surprised, as if it were a novelty, that after such long travel and so many changes of scene you have not been able to shake off the gloom and heaviness of your mind? You need a change of soul rather than a change of climate.[1] Though you may cross vast spaces of sea, and though, as our Vergil[2] remarks,

    Lands and cities are left astern,

    your faults will follow you whithersoever you travel. 2. Socrates made the same remark to one who complained; he said: "Why do you wonder that globe-trotting does not help you, seeing that you always take yourself with you? The reason which set you wandering is ever at your heels."
  • Christophe Andrehas quoted2 years ago
    living simply is voluntary poverty.

    emperor, Seneca is so linked with the age in which he lived that in reading his works we read those of a true representative of the most thrilling period of Roman history
  • Talia Garzahas quotedlast month
    Life! Let him roam in fear through unknown lands,
    An exile, hated, poor, without a home;
    A guest now too well known, let him, in vain,
    Seek alien doors, and long for me, his wife!
  • Talia Garzahas quotedlast month
    Homes crime built up, by crime must be dissolved.
  • Talia Garzahas quotedlast month
    thou still livest, or if aught endures
    Of ancient vigor—seek to find revenge
  • Talia Garzahas quotedlast month
    Through thine own bowels; throw off woman's fears,
    Intrench thyself in snowy Caucasus.
