Of a Happy Life

…true wisdom consists in not departing from nature and in moulding our conduct according to her laws and model. A happy life, therefore, is one which is in accordance with its own nature,…

…a man may be called “happy” who, thanks to reason, has ceased either to hope or to fear…

From “Of A Happy Life” | Seneca the Younger (c. 4 BC – AD 65)
