Really good collection, UF! Thanks for putting them together! smile
wow.. wonderful series. The insights of these great philosophers ring so true. The way they led their lives is also so illustrative of these principles.. reality-based principles.

Seneca on Anger: (paraphrased)
"The wealthy are more likely to be angry, because they have higher expectations (their wealth has allowed them to often get what they want)"
"To a mother of a dead child: Why do you weep over parts of life, when the whole of life is worthy of tears".
"Dont react to frustrating situations by saying.. everything will be OK. Instead, do ponder over things going bad and be prepared"
The manner in which he faced his death is so in line with his teachings.

Neitzche on Hardship:
"That which will not kill me makes me stronger".
"New Testament teachings are just escapisms.. such as The Meek shall inherit the earth"

Awesome stuff. Thanks for posting this.
