BREVITATE VITAE SENECA PDF

Maior pars mortalium, Pauline, de naturae malignitate conqueritur, quod in exiguum aevi gignamur, quod haec tam velociter, tam rapide dati nobis temporis spatia decurrant, adeo ut exceptis admodum paucis ceteros in ipso vitae apparatu vita destituat. Nec huic publico, ut opinantur, malo turba tantum et imprudens 1 volgus ingemuit; clarorum quoque virorum hic affectus querellas evocavit. The majority of mortals, Paulinus, a complain bitterly of the spitefulness of Nature, because we are born for a brief span of life, because even this space that has been granted to us rushes by so speedily and so swiftly that all save a very few find life at an end just when they are getting ready to live. Nor is it merely the common herd and the unthinking crowd that bemoan what is, as men deem it, an universal ill; the same feeling has called forth complaint also from men who were famous.

On the shortness of life

The philosopher brings up many Stoic principles on the nature of time , namely that people waste much of it in meaningless pursuits. According to the essay, nature gives people enough time to do what is really important and the individual must allot it properly. In general, time is best used by living in the present moment in pursuit of the intentional, purposeful life. Similar ideas can be found in Seneca's treatise De Otio On Leisure and discussion of these themes can often be found in his Letters to Lucilius letter 49, , etc. The work is addressed to a man called Paulinus—probably Pompeius Paulinus, a knight of Arelate —and is usually dated to around 49 AD. It is clear from chapters 18 and 19 of De Brevitate Vitae that Paulinus was praefectus annonae , the official who superintended the grain supply of Rome, and was, therefore, a man of importance.
