    I found this wonderful presentation of Seneca's greatest thoughts. The one that struck me profoundly is our constant complaining about how short life is and then complain that it will never end.

    I must admit, that after those 4 minutes and 31 seconds, that I felt quite anxious.

    You ask, anxious about what?

    Well, the very fact that I need this; but, don't want to acknowledge it.

    I remember when I read these years ago(many). Maybe they had some effect on me. :smile:

    Seneca is as warm and cuddling as our mothers and fathers when we were only four years old, no matter how awful things become. As that provided to children who perished aboard the Titanic. :smile:
