    Seneca’s 7 Commandments to Himself 

    I) I will look upon death or upon a comedy with the same expression of countenance.

    II) I will despise riches when I have them as much as when I have them not.

    III) I will view all lands as though they belong to me, and my own as though they belonged to all mankind.

    IV) Whatever I may possess, I will neither hoard it greedily nor squander it recklessly.

    V) I will do nothing because of public opinion, but everything because of conscience.

    VI) I will be agreeable with my friends, gentle and mild to my foes: I will grant pardon before I am asked for it, and will meet the wishes of honourable men half-way.

    VII) Whenever either Nature demands my breath again, or reason bids me dismiss it, I will quit this life, calling all to witness that I have loved a good conscience, and good pursuits.
