It’s a rough road that leads to the heights of greatness.” ~ Seneca
Quick quotes are used so often that I sometimes worry that we aren’t going any deeper than our initial impression of the idea presented. It may be enough to glean that moment of inspiration, but often times I am left hungering for more. A few minutes of audio gives me what I need with nearly no effort. Presented for your philosophical pleasure today:
Brian Johnson’s Philosopher’s Notes have been one of the key tools in my own personal development and discovery of joy and gratitude in my life. Click the banner below and check out his free audio samples – especially The Four Agreements – even if you have read it, being able to relive the key points in that book while you are driving to work is a great gift.
And if you are wondering who in the world this Seneca guy IS:
“Lucius Annaeus Seneca (often known simply as Seneca; ca. 4 BC – AD 65)
was a Roman Stoic philosopher, statesmen, dramatist, and in one work humorist, of the Silver Age of Latin literature. He was tutor and later advisor to the Emperor Nero. While he was later forced to commit suicide for alleged complicity in the Pisonian conspiracy to assassinate Nero, the last of the Julio-Claudian emperors, he may have been innocent. His father was Seneca the Elder and his elder brother was Lucius Junius Gallio Annaeanus.”
