Seneca And I – True Happiness~

Re-Blogging this beautiful post ‘Seneca And I’ from Simple Pleasures. Thanks Cindy for writing it and linking it with equally lovely picture. Is this clicked at the time of Dawn or is it Dusk? I have been looking for good sunrise pictures… I really enjoyed the visual poetry on ‘Simple Pleasures’ its a lovely blend of Poetry and Photography.

Thanks also for following my blog which introduced me to yours… I have this Tricks4English blog for my students on ‘How to Learn to Speak’ with ease and confidence. I generally use Simple language for everyday Conversations.

Dear Students: please write your comments on the the Picture below (take it as a Describe The Picture assignment) . Ashish

“True happiness is to enjoy the present,
without anxious dependence upon the future,
not to amuse ourselves with either
hopes or fears but to rest
satisfied with what we have,
which is sufficient,
for he that is so wants nothing.
The greatest blessings of mankind are
within us and within our reach.
A wise man is content with his lot,

whatever it may be,
without wishing for what he has not.”
― Seneca

(Re-writing the words with the permission of the author… white text is not readable in the re-blogged post below… but its there, Hidden!)
