Publisher Description

"It's not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste much of it." 2,000 years later, these words penned by the Roman philosopher Seneca ring as true as ever, along with the other lessons in which he instructs his father in-law Paulinus. He makes the case that nothing could be more precious to mortal beings like ourselves than time, and that an awareness of our own mortality ought to factor into all our decisions, from the way we go about our day, to the ultimate use we make out of our lives.
