Sure bro, keep telling yourself that. Hey, maybe go by a hospital or morgue to help people out, see if this crisis gets resolved faster, if you're so bored.

I wager he never heard of meditation. Must have been a troubled fella.

This made no sense. In any way at all.

Why not? Which government do you enjoy having their boots over your face?

I like Mike's approach to this one, but still, I have another approach that might be of interest.
My first interpretation is that Seneca pointed out how doing just a little bit of good, or a little bit of good work, or shining in a specific aspect, isn't enough. The horse that has a golden bit doesn't become a golden horse or a perfect ride. Similarly, we can't just say "I give some money to charity, so I'm a good person". It might not be enough. It might be just a golden appearance. We need to strive to be "golden" in everything we do, say, and think, instead.

This one was bound to get the proselytists angry. On point.
Keep reeding that one book of your folks...

Sorry David, but what it is that any men "must" do? No onw owns you or anybody anything. If you think diferently, you would fit well the shows of what you call a Tyrant.

Now if only we could get to be told to all flat-eathers, climate deniers, creationists, and the like...

Oooh boy. It's impressive how nowadays people's deepest ignorances about complex subjects gets transformed so deeply into ill-founded ideologies. The nut-jobs claiming that evolution and mankind's lineage to the great ape have no scientific evidence are so deeply stranged from the literature on the matter that it bears no point arguing. It's like arguing with a worm buried in the sand that insists the sky doesn't exist. Impressive how the age of information gave, paradoxically, rise to such stupidity. At this point, we can just wait for you guys to join the Flat-Earthers, if you're not in that tribe already.

By the way, you're welcome for all the tech science has provided for your life, that you most likely also can't comprehend.

He seems more worried about protecting his gospel...

How can someone down vote this quote?

Felipe, São Paulo

Wut? Sounds like wishful thinking. Maybe this works in some economies.

Today when we see someone feeling the "bad" emotions, like anger or sadness, we treat them as sick people, and only rarely get to ask what in the world actually happened to them.

By the way, I feel most here did not understood the quote at all.

Indeed, Archer. Today when we see someone feeling the "bad" emotions, like anger or sadness, we treat them as sick people, and only rarely get to ask what in the world actually happened to them.

Indeed, David, my friend, indeed!
I would say, today, it seems like laws make us less and less just.

This has just become my new favorite quote.
To those that seem to have stopped at the first sentence, try reading it all. Or, maybe, you felt too much similar to the "critics" he is talking about?
"The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming"

Felipe, São Paulo

Amazing quote. I'll try to use it in my writings from now on. I'm really eager for reading Solzhenitsyn's work.

An utopy we'll never have. Human mind alone provides enough damming biases, not mentioning all other politics&money shenanigans.

That's the definition of prejudice. Your ideas, no matter how good you believe they are, would take less than a generation to become the embodiment of unfair treatment. Judge not people and make no laws that judge them (by their color, sex, etc), and in time you'll have the old biases fixed and not new ones arriving.
You just expressed the very wrong way of creating "equality".

Felipe, São Paulo

You guys managed to botch even Thoreau. ffs...
