-Dante Alighieri, Inferno
"These have no hope that death will overcome. And so degraded is the life they lead; all look with envy on all other fates."
-Seneca, On the Shortness of Life
"How late it is to begin really to live just when life must end! How stupid to forget our mortality, to put off plans aiming to begin life from a point at which few have arrived."
-Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
"You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength."
