Seneca, Living Well, Dying Well | Reflections on Theology and Moral Philosophy
Seneca asks, "What man can you show me who places any value on his time, who reckons the worth of each day, who understands that he is dying daily? For we are mistaken when we look forward to death; the major portion of death has already passed. What years be behind us are in death's hands?" Nothing in life is ours except time, while we postpone life speeds by, so let us live well, not wasting time.
