“Seneca had defined the discipline of action as follows: in the first place, judge the value of the matter in question; then adjust our active impulses to this value; finally, bring active impulse and action into harmony, so that we may always remain in accord with ourselves.”

“Only one thing has value down here: to spend one’s life in truth and justice, all the while remaining benevolent to liars and the unjust.”
