“It is not the man who has too little, but the man who craves more, that is poor.”

Seneca. Letters from a Stoic. Letter 2: On Discursiveness in Reading


It is important to stay humble in our lives. Poor to one man is rich to another. By living with acceptance and comfort with who and where we are, by living and enjoying the present moment, we are living our best lives. This is not to say to not reach for more, or to be passive. It means we learn to enjoy and love the life we have at this moment. No amount of monetary value will bring happiness. Happiness and living a good life is found within ourselves.
