Wisdom of Seneca

All art is an imitation of nature.

As was his language so was his life.

Be not too hasty either with praise or blame; speak always as though you were giving evidence before the judgement-seat of the Gods.

Consult your friend on all things, especially on those which respect yourself. His counsel may then be useful where your own self-love might impair your judgment.

Delay not; swift the flight of fortune's greatest favours.

Difficulties strengthen the mind, as labor does the body.

Enjoy present pleasures in such a way as not to injure future ones.

He will live ill who does not know how to die well.

I do not distinguish by the eye, but by the mind, which is the proper judge.

If a man does not know to what port he is steering, no wind is favourable to him.
