    The majority of mortals, Paulinus, complain bitterly of the spitefulness of Nature, because we are born for a brief span of life, because even this space that has been granted to us rushes by so speedily and so swiftly that all save a very few find life at an end just when they are getting ready to live. Nor is it merely the common herd and the unthinking crowd that bemoan what is, as men deem it, an universal ill; the same feeling has called forth complaint also from men who were famous.

    Towards the end of his life, Seneca the Younger (c4 BCE-65 CE) began a correspondence with a friend in Sicily, later collected under the title The Moral Epistles. In these 124 letters, Seneca expresses, in a wise, steady and calm manner, the philosophy by which he lived - derived essentially from the Stoics. The letters deal with a variety of specific topics - often eminently practical - such as 'On Saving Time', 'On the Terrors of Death', 'On True and False Friendships', 'On Brawn and Brains' and 'On Old Age and Death'.

    As former tutor and adviser to Emperor Nero, philosopher and statesman Seneca was acutely aware of how short life can be - his own life was cut short when the emperor ordered him to commit suicide (for alleged involvement in a conspiracy). And Seneca proved true to his words - his lifelong avowal to Stoicism enabled him to conduct himself with dignity to the end. During his rich and busy life, Seneca wrote a series of essays that have advised and enriched the lives of generations down to the present day.

    "It takes an entire lifetime to learn how to die", wrote the Roman Stoic philosopher Seneca (c. 4 BC-65 AD). He counseled readers to "study death always", and took his own advice, returning to the subject again and again in all his writings, yet he never treated it in a complete work. How to Die gathers in one volume, for the first time, Seneca's remarkable meditations on death and dying. Edited and translated by James S. Romm, How to Die reveals a provocative thinker who speaks with a startling frankness about the need to accept death or even, under certain conditions, to seek it out.

    De Brevitate Vitae (frequently referred to as On the Shortness of Life in English) is a moral essay written by Seneca the Younger, a Roman Stoic philosopher, to his father-in-law Paulinus. The philosopher brings up many Stoic principles on the nature of time, namely that men waste much of it in meaningless pursuits. According to the essay, nature gives man enough time to do what is really important and the individual must allot it properly.

    'On Anger' is one of Seneca's most important essays. At some length he investigates the nature of anger: how and why it emerges, the effect it has on the individual and those to whom it is directed, and how to manage it and prevent it even from arising. For, Seneca considers, anger simply serves no purpose - it does not bring courage in war, prevent others misbehaving or punish miscreants. In short it has a negative effect on all. In 'On Leisure' he takes a short look at what is really meant by the term.

The philosopher brings up many Stoic principles on the nature of time, namely that people waste much of it in meaningless pursuits.

In general, time is best used by living in the present moment in pursuit of the intentional, purposeful life.

    Seneca, der große stoische Philosoph und Staatsmann, wird von seinem Freund Serenus wie ein Arzt angesprochen: "Heile mich, Seneca, von meinem Makel im Innersten!" Seine Seele fühle sich beklemmt. Serenus beschreibt seine innere Unruhe, den Wankelmut, das innere Schwanken und daraus resultierend seinen Missmut und seine Unzufriedenheit. Seneca lässt sich nicht lange bitten: Das alles, so lautet sein Credo, sei durch die Stoa heilbar - damals genau wie heute.

    Lucius Annaeus Seneca war ein römischer Philosoph, Staatsmann und Dramatiker. Er zählt zu den wichtigsten Vertretern der Stoa, nebst Marc Aurel, Cicero und Epiktet. Primär befasste er sich mit den Fragen der rechten Lebensführung. Es sei eine Pflicht, jedem Menschen Gutes zu tun. Armut sei keine Pflicht des Weisen, solange der Reichtum ehrlich verdient und überlegt eingesetzt werde. Er sah sich selbst aber nicht als vollkommenen Weisen: "Ich preise das Leben, nicht wie ich es führe, sondern wie ich weiß, dass es geführt werden muss."

    Der bekannte, an seinen Bruder Gallio adressierte Text gehört zu den wichtigen Texten Senecas und hat später Autoren und Philosophen von Heinrich von Kleist bis Wilhelm Schmid beeinflusst. Seneca arbeitet dabei Unterschiede zwischen Wohlleben und Glück heraus, verurteilt nicht die Annehmlichkeiten des Lebens, weist ihnen aber den gebührenden Platz nach den wichtigen Dingen des Lebens zu. Nach und nach entwickelt er so ein Vademecum über das richtige, gelingende Leben. Vom glückseligen Leben.
