Letters from a Stoic

IMG 7151


As it is with a play, so it is with life - what matters is not how long the acting lasts, but how good it is. (…) What really ruins our characters is the fact that none of us looks back over his life. We think about what we are going to do, and only rarely of that, and fail to think about what we have done, yet any plans for the future are dependant on the past.


Seneca, "Letters from a Stoic". Translated by Robin Campbell. 

Lucius Annaeus Seneca (ca. 4 BC - 65 AD) was a Roman Stoic philosopher, stateman and dramatist of the Silver Age of Latin literature.

Carl Milles (1875 – 1955) was a Swedish sculptor. Millesgården, that he designed and was his home, is now a museum with Milles' antique collection, sculpture garden, and art gallery.
