Fortune gives us nothing which we can really own

Fortune gives us nothing which we can really own.

– Seneca

I should remember my mortality, and the mortality of others.

How silly will all my resentments look like, in a future not so far from now.

Live in this moment, every minute of the day, but do your best not to embarrass your future self!

When you worry, you are rushing to meet the possible problems of tomorrow. When you regret, you live in the past.

Remember that nothing is really your own. It is all borrowed, and the angel of death will claim it all some day.

There’s nothing you can do about that, so just take it easy and enjoy the ride!
