  •  “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.”

  •  “Life is the fire that burns and the sun that gives light. Life is the wind and the rain and the thunder in the sky. Life is matter and is earth, what is and what is not, and what beyond is in Eternity.”

  •  “A man who suffers before it is necessary, suffers more than is necessary.”

  •  “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.”
