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.”

I have enjoyed working for over 20 years in the education and publishing spaces creating accessible learning environments for all students. My teaching experiences led me into supporting schools in need of improvement and creating and delivering professional development to teachers and leaders. And then I moved into selling educational materials, programs, technology, and services. Most recently, I have been developing content for innovative learning programs in K-12 and museum spaces. For the past 17 years serving on the board of the Collegiate Corporation, I have led initiatives in women's leadership, stewardship, development, virtual strategy, and educational programs for youth and families. Outside of the learning and non-profit spaces, I enjoy blogging about faith and inspiring women. I have a passion for travel, where you might find me exploring national parks, museums, and finding the best local restaurant to eat. I capture my adventures digitally with my camera. My photography has appeared in exhibitions throughout Europe and Australia in 2019 and 2020, on television in the United States, and was chosen from over 100,000 entries to appear in a well-known photography magazine.
