Publisher's Summary

Continue to act thus, my dear Lucilius - set yourself free for your own sake; gather and save your time, which till lately has been forced from you, or filched away, or has merely slipped from your hands. Make yourself believe the truth of my words, that certain moments are torn from us, that some are gently removed, and that others glide beyond our reach. The most disgraceful kind of loss, however, is that due to carelessness. Furthermore, if you will pay close heed to the problem, you will find that the largest portion of our life passes while we are doing ill, a goodly share while we are doing nothing, and the whole while we are doing that which is not to the purpose. What man can you show me who places any value on his time, who reckons the worth of each day, who understands that he is dying daily? For we are mistaken when we look forward to death; the major portion of death has already passed. Whatever years be behind us are in death's hands.

I’m glad I finally “read” some of Seneca’s writing

Any additional comments?

When I was in school I was not interested in Philosophy, and managed to skip the required readings (I’m not proud of it).
I felt that I still needed to read them, so I’m doing it now, and I was not disappointed with these letters from Seneca; I found some advice that I can apply to my life.

Kevin Theis narration style is perfect for this type of reading.

I received this audio-book free for an honest review by the author, narrator, or publisher. Thank you!!!
