DE LA BREVEDAD DE LA VIDA SENECA PDF

On the Shortness of Life is one of my personal favorites since Seneca, ever the true eclectic, brilliantly draws from the various streams of ancient wisdom: Stoic, Epicurean, Platonic, Skeptic, and Cynic, as he addresses some of the most important questions we face as humans. Below are several quotes along The great Roman philosopher, statesman, dramatist Seneca BC 4 — AD 64 wrote many letters encouraging friends to apply themselves to the task of living a free, wise, tranquil and joyful life. Below are several quotes along with my comments. Life is long enough, and it has been given in sufficiently generous measure to allow the accomplishment of the very greatest things if the whole of it is well invested.

On the Shortness of Life is one of my personal favorites since Seneca, ever the true eclectic, brilliantly draws from the various streams of ancient wisdom: Stoic, Epicurean, Platonic, Skeptic, and Cynic, as he addresses some of the most important questions we face as humans. Below are several quotes along The great Roman philosopher, statesman, dramatist Seneca BC 4 — AD 64 wrote many letters encouraging friends to apply themselves to the task of living a free, wise, tranquil and joyful life.

Below are several quotes along with my comments. Life is long enough, and it has been given in sufficiently generous measure to allow the accomplishment of the very greatest things if the whole of it is well invested. But when it is squandered in luxury and carelessness, when it is devoted to no good end, forced at last by the ultimate necessity we perceive that it has passed away before we were aware that it was passing.

So it is — the life we receive is not short, but we make it so, nor do we have any lack of it, but as wasteful of it. I wonder how many men and women have spent their last hours watching Daffy Duck cartoons or a weather report. When in the hospital several years ago, I insisted on a room where the television would not be on. Fortunately, once I encountered philosophy and literature in college, boredom completely dissolved.

And why do people continually complain or gab incessantly or become easily bored? According to Seneca, such a person knows nothing about the art of living. There is nothing the busy man is less busied with than living: there is nothing that is harder to learn. And so there is no reason for you to think that any man has lived long because he has grey hairs or wrinkles, he has no lived long — he has existed long.

For what if you should think that man had had a long voyage who had been caught by a fierce storm as soon as he left harbor, and, swept hither and thither by a succession of winds that raged from different quarters, had been driven in a circle around the same course? Not much voyaging did he have, but much tossing about.

If you feel your life is an endless cycle of frantic activity, time to step back and take a deep breath with Seneca. We may argue with Socrates, we may doubt with Carneades, find peace with Epicurus, overcome human nature with the Stoics, exceed it Cynics.

This is one way to view the Platonic ideas. For the great philosophers of the ancient Greek and Roman world, philosophy was a path to personal transformation and liberation. And this path is still open to us today.

No tenemos un tiempo escaso, sino que perdemos mucho. Porque todo el espacio restante no es vida, es mero tiempo. Mira aquellos otros a cuya prosperidad se arriman todos: se ven ahogados por sus bienes. Y es que una vez que las palabras ya brotaron, los sentimientos se deslizan de nuevo a lo acostumbrado.
