Death Reflections #21

From: ‘How To Die: An Ancient Guide to the End of Life’ by Seneca, edited, translated, and introduced by James S. Romm:

Quote: Just as it is with storytelling, so with life: it’s important how well it is done, not how long… It doesn’t matter at what point you call a halt. Stop wherever you like; only put a good closer on it. (Epistle 77.5-20)

Thought: Quality over quantity applies not just to everything in life, but to life itself too. A bad beginning does not matter if there is a good ending.
