    I thought this was a fitting book to close the year with. The version I read included both Seneca’s De brevitate vitae(On the shortness of life) and De Vita Beata(On the happy life) united under the playful heading “I have no other time”. I enjoyed De brevitate vitae a lot more than I did De Vita Beata which started off philosophically enough, but ended up being a very defensive piece of writing. A lot of Seneca’s points are still poignant today although I feel some of them might be lost on mode I thought this was a fitting book to close the year with.

A lot of Seneca’s points are still poignant today although I feel some of them might be lost on modern readers bombarded from every direction with a generally accepted notion of what the good life should be. Although in some ways, it’s made up of the same old things Seneca was preaching against: confusing material gain with happiness, pleasure in excess, ambition for the sake of power and of course, occupying your every minute so you don’t have to think about life. I thought this in particular was something we are guilty of. It feels like every free minute has to be filled up by something outside ourselves (phones, internet, games, TV etc) and few take those moments to instead explore their own notions of life. In the end, just as Seneca says, we shorten our own lives because we tune ourselves out instead of exploring our inner selves and enriching through it the little time we have.

    Este prima dată când iau contact cu Seneca și, negreșit, voi dori să citesc mai multe din operele sale. În ”Alt timp nu am” abordează într-un mod brutal de onest modul total neglijent în care ne folosim timpul. Cu toate că timpul este cel mai prețios bun pe care îl avem în această viață și cu toate că el este extrem de scurt, îl folosim cu multă generozitate în lucruri care nu contribuie la fericirea noastră sau la o viață bună.

În ”Alt timp nu am” abordează într-un mod brutal de onest modul total neglijent în care ne folosim timpul. Cu toate că timpul este cel mai prețios bun pe care îl avem în această viață și cu toate că el este extrem de scurt, îl folosim cu multă generozitate în lucruri care nu contribuie la fericirea noastră sau la o viață bună. Iar din această cauză, când vine vremea să murim ne este teamă, căci conștientizăm că am trăit mare parte în zadar. Neînvățând cum să trăim, nici nu știm cum să murim. Mi-a plăcut modul direct de a vorbi despre un subiect atât de delicat, însă atât de esențial. Pentru că majoritatea dintre noi ne pierdem în lucrurile mici ale vieții de zi cu zi, care sug din noi viața, atenția și energia, fără a ne îmbogăți, fără a ne oferi atât de mult rânjita fericire, pace sau împlinire. Ajungem să ne înconjurăm în iluziile micilor plăceri, să ascundem sub covor golurile din interior până într-un punct al vieții când va fi prea târziu. Din toate aceste motive, întâlnirea cu Seneca a fost ca un duș cu apă rece. M-a șocat puțin, dar a meritat pentru că m-a pus față în față cu un subiect pe care rareori îl abordăm singuri cu atât de mult curaj.

    In my household, we adore Seneca and wish we'd read him earlier in life. Among other gems in this compendium of wisdom is Seneca's "On a Happy Life," which is addressed to someone named Gaio (lucky soul) and begins: "All men, brother Gallio, wish to live happily, but are dull at perceiving what it is that makes life happy[....] I cannot recommend Seneca to any thoughtful soul who id attempting to make sense of our times. In any storm, he is a shelter worth seeking. He wastes not one word, but tel In my household, we adore Seneca and wish we'd read him earlier in life.

Mere money cannot buy the thrill that awaits you. Read Seneca and thank the gods for one generous soul.

    The book is composed by two major parts: I. "De brevitate vitae" - talks about the shortness of life, how we treat time with little importance ant just gave it to others thinking it's an infinite resource. It makes you think about who you give your time to and if it's worth it. II. "De vita beata" - talks about happiness, the difference between virtue and pleasures, and how we should limit our pleasures to a moderate level. Also talks about how you should think about richness and possessions in The book is composed by two major parts: I.

Also talks about how you should think about richness and possessions in order to not let them control your life. I really liked it

    I am not a passionate fan of philosophy, but Seneca makes me like it. The book, divided into two main chapters "On the shortness of life" and " On the happy life" offers quotes, life believes and I also notice that lots of Seneca's points of view are timeless. The priceless good of us is time, so he urged to don't waste it on bounded pleasures, vanity, vices, etc.

    The book enhances the value of the time, and how we waste or try to do the most of it. When it comes to time, it makes a clear distinction of the time spent and time wasted, that invested and that lost. To do the best of your life, you should search for the golden middle, between the time spent with activities and the one used for rest. Happiness, being a very relative term, people report to it depending on the situation in which they find themselves at that specific moment.

Happiness, being a very relative term, people report to it depending on the situation in which they find themselves at that specific moment. What brings you happiness, can make someone sad, and what you perceive as random and normal can be the pick of happiness for the others. Look for something better, but do not forget to be thankful for what you have - this is a conclusion of the essay.

    "Spune inteleptul: nu traiesc altfel decat vorbesc, ci voi auziti altceva decat spun eu; doar sunetul cuvintelor ajunge la urechile voastre: care le este sensul, voi nu incercati sa aflati."

    Timeless wisdom for current struggles Reading Seneca’s work is a needed reminder that the world has, and always will have struggles and that the tools most effective for dealing with our challenges have not changed. Seneca’s philosophy can be applied today to put the buzz and ding of modern life in perspective and help us focus on what truly matters.

    Tkmpul este cea mai importanta resursa pe care o avem, pe care o consideram inepuizabila si de care abuzam. Doar ca el, timpul, se incapataneaza sa nu ne astepte si sa ne arate, secunda cu secunda, ca viata se scurge. E uimitor cat de actuale sunt scrierile lui Seneca si cat de incapatanat a ramas omul in a-si irosi timpul cu lucruri lipsite de importanta.

    Original works of Seneca are relevant today as much as they were relevant back in this philosopher's time. A wonderful collection!

    Foarte actuale cele două scrieri ale lui Seneca. Sunt puțin răstite în anumite părți, dar unele lucruri trebuiau și atunci, ca acum, spuse pe un ton mai puțin prietenos.

    Înțeleptul, de fapt, nu se socotește de nici unul dintr darurile sorții, nu iubește bogățiile, dar le preferă, nu le primește din suflet, ci în casă, nu respinge averile pe care le are, ci le păstrează și dorește ca acestea să îi ofere un material mai bogat pentru virtutea sa.
