On Stoicism


“Show me that the good life doesn’t consist in its length, but in its use, and that it is possible—no, entirely too common—for a person who has had a long life to have lived too little.”


This quote emphasizes the importance of self-reflection and personal growth, rather than comparing oneself to others. It suggests that one should strive to lead a meaningful and fulfilling life, regardless of the number of years they are given. We all know someone who passed away prematurely but left a lasting impact, making us aspire to achieve even half of what they did. The key to living a well-lived life is focusing on the present moment and giving our full attention to the task at hand, regardless of its scale. By doing so, we can slow down the rapid passage of time and make the most of our lives.
