Live immediately

Putting things off is the biggest waste of life: It snatches away each day as it comes, and denies us the present by promising the futre. The greatest obstacle to living is expectancy, which hangs upon tomorrow and loses today. You are arranging what lies in Fortune’s control, and abandoning what lies in yours. What are you looking at? To what goal are you straining? The whole future lies in uncertainty: Live immediately.

~ Seneca

Imagine where you will be

Three weeks from now, I will be harvesting my crops.
Imagine where you will be, and it will be so.
If you find yourself alone, riding in the green fields
with the sun on your face, do not be troubled.
For you are in Elysium, and you’re already dead!
Brothers, what we do in life… echoes in eternity.

~ Maximus
