On the Shortness of Life (Latin: 'De Brevitate Vitae') is a moral essay written by
Seneca the Younger, a Roman Stoic philosopher.
The essay brings up many Stoic principles on the nature of time, namely that people
waste much of it in meaningless pursuits.
According to the essay, nature gives people enough time to do what is really
important and the individual must allot it properly.
In general, time is best used by living in the present moment in pursuit of
the intentional, purposeful life.
