“What difference does it make how much you have?
What you do not have amounts to much more.”
— Lucius Annaeus Seneca
I never saw this quote until tonight and it is a beauty! What a wonderful thing to ponder. . .
Even those with “all the money” have a pittance in comparison with what they do not have. Even those will “all the property” have a pittance in comparison with what property they do not have. And, on it goes.
Of course, we see those who have more than us, especially those on the television, and maybe it is substantially more, yet whatever they have is a pittance in comparison with what they do not have.
And so it goes. . .
Kind Of Puts Things In Perspective. . .
Spread Some Joy Today–Rejoice in what you have! It really doesn’t matter so much what you don’t have because that would be about as much as the richest person ever. How fun.
