    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.

    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.

    Sobre A Brevidade Da Vida é um ensaio moral escrito por Sêneca o Jovem, um filósofo estoico romano, para seu padrasto Paulinus. O filósofo nos traz muitos princípios estoicos sobre a natureza do tempo, principalmente a que os homens desperdiçam muito do seu próprio tempo em perseguições sem sentido. De acordo com o ensaio, a natureza dá ao homem tempo o suficiente para fazer o que é realmente importante e o indivíduo precisa permitir que isso aconteça propriamente.

    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."

    Die Kürze des Lebens: Wir haben nicht zu wenig Zeit - wir vergeuden zu viel. Das Leben ist lang, wir selbst machen es kurz, indem wir es achtlos dahinfließen lassen. Das ist die grundlegende Einsicht des großen Stoikers Lucius Annaeus Seneca. "Du verteidigst Deinen Reichtum, aber Du vergeudest Dein Leben!", "Du lebst, als wärst Du ewig da!", "Schämst Du dich nicht, Dein Leben in die Zukunft hinauszuschieben, statt es jetzt zu leben!"

    Wenn Dir ein Unheil passiert, gibt es für Dich kein besseres Heilmittel als die Lektüre von Lucius A. Seneca. Seine Schriften fanden die Bewunderung des Kirchenvaters Hieronymus, sie trösteten den römischen Senator Boethius im Gefängnis, sie wurden von Dante zitiert und von Rubens verehrt, sie entlockten sogar dem Erasmus höchstes Lob. Sein eigenes Leben vor 2000 Jahren scheint dazu in offenem Gegensatz zu stehen: Unter Kaiser Caligula wird Seneca verfolgt, unter Claudius verbannt und von Nero zum Selbstmord gezwungen.

    Sulla Brevitá della Vita é un saggio morale, scritto da Seneca il Giovane, un filosofo stoico romano, al suo suocero. Il filosofo solleva molti principi stoici sulla natura del tempo, ossia che gli uomini sprecano gran parte del loro tempo in attivitá insignificanti. Secondo il saggio, la natura dá all'uomo abbastanza tempo per fare ció che é veramente importante e l'individuo la distribuisce in modo corretto. In generale, puó essere miglior utilizzato nello studio della filosofia, secondo Seneca. Questo saggio é stato adattato con cura in una forma contemporanea per consentire una facile lettura.

    Auf der Suche nach einem glücklichen Leben ist der Mensch seit jeher. Was Glück bedeutet, das hat sich allerdings geändert und ist auch heute so unterschiedlich wie die Lebenswelten der Menschen. Läßt sich vor diesem Hintergrund überhaupt sinnvoll von dem Glück reden, lassen sich Regeln und Maximen aufstellen, die zu einem gelingenden, einem glücklichen Leben führen? Seneca sagt: Ja, das ist möglich. Er setzt dafür bei dem an, was den Menschen zum Menschen macht: bei der Vernunft.

    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.

    Der Alltag, der Erfolg, der Beruf, die Familie, die Liebe, die Sexualität, kurz das Leben, scheint das Schwierigste auf der Welt zu sein. Warum sonst erscheinen diese unzähligen Ratgeber, die für alle Lebenslagen Hilfe anbieten und in allen Medien präsent sind. Dabei könnte alles so einfach sein. Seneca wusste schon vor 2000 Jahren so viel über den Menschen und die Gesellschaft, dass die Lektüre seiner Schriften die meisten Ratgeber überflüssig macht...

    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.
