Wisdom from Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Have you ever come across quotes from Lucius Annaeus Seneca, the dramatist, philosopher, and Roman politician who lived from 5 BC – 65 AD?  Here are some of my favorites:

“If a man knows not what harbor he seeks, any wind is the right wind.”

“As long as you live, keep learning how to live.”

“One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.”

“Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity.”

“Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness.”

“He who is brave is free.”

“Nothing is void of God, his work is everywhere his full of himself.”

“If you wished to be loved, love.”

“The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity.”

“Associate with people who are likely to improve you.”

“Putting things off is the biggest waste of life: it snatches away each day as it comes, and denies us the present by promising the future. The greatest obstacle to living is expectancy, which hangs upon tomorrow, and loses today. You are arranging what lies in Fortune’s control, and abandoning what lies in yours. What are you looking at? To what goal are you straining? The whole future lies in uncertainty: live immediately.”

“Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.”
