Death Reflections #7


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

Quote: Nothing can be of such great benefit to you, in your quest for moderation in all things, than to frequently contemplate the brevity of one’s life span, and its uncertainty. Whatever you undertake, cast your eyes on death. (Epistle 114.27)

Thought: Deal with life’s brevity and uncertainty by accepting and remembering it – so that if can be lived with as much meaning as possible now – which certainly can be done now.
