I have started reading “The Tao of Seneca” by Tim Ferris.
In Seneca’s second letter, I found this:
“It is not the man who has too little, but the man who craves more, that is poor. What does it matter how much a man has laid up in his safe, or in his warehouse, how large are his flocks and how fat his dividends, if he covets his neighbour’s property, and reckons, not his past gains, but his hopes of gains to come? Do you ask what is the proper limit to wealth? It is, first, to have what is necessary, and, second, to have what is enough. Farewell.
I am a big fan of audio books. If you would like to listen to “The Tao of Seneca”, click here.
