363/365 - The Greatest Blessings (Seneca)


“True happiness 
is to enjoy the present,
 without anxious dependence 
upon the future, 
not to amuse ourselves 
with either hopes or fears 
but to rest satisfied 
with what we have,
 which is sufficient,
 for he that is so 
 wants nothing. 

The greatest blessings of mankind
 are within us 
and within our reach. 

A wise man 
is content with his lot, 
whatever it may be,
 without wishing for what he has not.”

Seneca
