On the Shortness of Life | Seneca

”De Brevitate Viate” (the original title) was written by Seneca the Younger, a Roman Stoic philosopher, about 50 years after Christ was born. The book is about stoic principles about the nature of time and man’s waste of his life. The thesis is that nature has given us long enough time to live, but that most of us do not know how to live. Although the book is almost 2,000 years old, it is still very current.
