293 Read Seneca!

"So let us face up to the blows of circumstance and be aware that whatever happens is never as serious as rumor makes it out to be." Get to know the life and words of Seneca! TRR Smart Camp #293! 

In celebration of little bitches everywhere I'm highlighting Seneca because his thoughts were immortal and they should live in your brain.

He was a contradiction because in his own life he failed to live up to his own teachings but his works may have inspired the birth of the essay and modern psychology. Here is a little taste of the narcotic that is Seneca:

"So let us face up to the blows of circumstance and be aware that whatever happens is never as serious as rumor makes it out to be."

"A setback has often cleared the way for greater prosperity. Many things have fallen only to rise to more exalted heights." 

“What you must do, then, is mend your ways and get rid of the burden you're carrying. Keep your cravings within safe limits. Scour every trace of evil from your personality. 

“If you want to enjoy your travel, you must make your traveling companion a healthy one." 

Everyone should read Seneca!

Start with the book 'Letters From A Stoic' and before you dive in give this episode of Smart Camp a listen to learn about this extraordinary man and his thought provoking words that still resonate today. 

 

Hooray for humanity!
