SLRP: LIV. On Asthma And Death.

Standard

Seneca,

I disagree, that there is not virtue for one expelled as one who goes willingly.  Even in expulsion, one has the ability to accept and assent.  To note what’s up to us, and what’s not.  Despite the fact that one’s light might be snuffed out rather than running out of wick, there is still the opportunity for virtue there.

Your letter provides much food for thought today.  Thanks.

Farewell.
