Seneca: “Since we were born our condition is good, if we have not abandoned it; “Nature arranged things in such a way that to live well no great apparatus was needed: everyone can make themselves happy.” In Seneca, philosophy is health. So if it is not to cure the ills of the spirit, what is philosophy for? In this sense, this universal Cordoban, tutor of Nero and spiritual director of the upper classes of Rome, was a doctor of the elites. Enclosed in the capsule of his grave and sagacious sentences, the medicine he offers has given serenity to the soul for centuries.

Marcus Aurelius: “A good way to defend yourself against them is not to look like them.” Written in Greek by a Roman emperor, the “Meditations” are probably the most perfect ethical product of the ancient spirit and participate in the current events surrounding Stoic thought today.
