“On the Shortness of Life” by Seneca
This book is one of the three great works of stoic wisdom. Together with “Meditations” by Marcus Aurelius and “Discourses” by Epictetus, these are the sources from which we learn this ancient philosophy.
Stoics have inspired a lot of modern philosophers and we saw their influence in “Antifragile”, “12 Rules for Life”, and “The Obstacle is the Way”. Now it’s time to check the undistilled version so we can build our own conclusions.
