On The Shortness of Life – Seneca

Seneca states that life can be long, but only if you know how to use your time wisely. Points taken away from the book:

 

1.It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it.

 

2. Act now. Not tomorrow. Today. No one wants to look back on their life on their death bed regretting that they could have done something when they didn’t. You act like mortals in all that you fear, and like immortals in all that you desire.

 

3.Everyone hustles his life along, and is troubled by a longing for the future and weariness of the present. But the man who spends all his time on his own needs, who organizes every day as though it were his last, neither longs for nor fears the next day.

4.Putting things off is the biggest waste of life: it snatches away each day as it comes, and denies us the present by promising the future.
