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

    Lucius Annaeus Seneca


  • “We should every night call ourselves to an account: what infirmity have I mastered today? what passions opposed? what temptation resisted? what virtue acquired? Our vices will abate of themselves if they be brought every day to the shrift.”

  •  “The way is long if one follows precepts, but short... if one follows patterns.”

  •  “It's not because things are difficult that we dare not venture. It's because we dare not venture that they are difficult.”
