“You have power over your mind — not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” — Marcus Aurelius


“Until we have begun to go without them, we fail to realize how unnecessary many things are. We’ve been using them not because we needed them but because we had them.” — Seneca


“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, Whatever years be behind us are in death’s hands.” — Seneca


“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive — to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love” — Marcus Aurelius


“The whole future lies in uncertainty: live immediately.” — Seneca


“No one is to be found who is willing to distribute his money, yet among how many does each one of us distribute his life!… You squander time as if you drew from a full and abundant supply, though all the while that day which you bestow on some person or thing is perhaps your last.”— Seneca
