Emily Wilson
“In poverty, there is only one kind of virtue—not to be oppressed or crushed by it.”
Emily Wilson, The Greatest Empire: A Life of Seneca

Emily Wilson
“The practice of trying to become healthy is worth praising, regardless of whether it works. Surely it isn’t surprising if people who set off on the steep path don’t reach the very top. If you’re a man, look up to those who are attempting great things, even if they fall”
Emily Wilson, The Greatest Empire: A Life of Seneca

Culadasa (John Yates)
“Attention analyzes our experience, and peripheral awareness provides the context. When one or the other doesn’t do its job, or when there isn’t enough interaction between the two, then we respond to situations less effectively. We may overreact, make poor decisions, or misinterpret what’s going on.”
John Yates, The Mind Illuminated: A Complete Meditation Guide Integrating Buddhist Wisdom and Brain Science

Emily Wilson
“In actuality, the current of influence between Pauline Christianity and Roman Stoicism ran in the other direction. Paul was deeply influenced by Stoic philosophy, if not directly by Seneca. He borrowed the notions of indifferent things, of what is properly one’s own (oikeiosis), the ideal of freedom from passion, and the paradoxical notion of freedom through slavery, fairly directly from the Stoics. 4”
Emily Wilson, The Greatest Empire: A Life of Seneca

Culadasa (John Yates)
“However, by mindfulness, I specifically mean the optimal interaction between attention and peripheral awareness, which requires increasing the overall conscious power of the mind.”
John Yates, The Mind Illuminated: A Complete Meditation Guide Integrating Buddhist Wisdom and Brain Science
