Two Excellent Quotes from Seneca

Author Ryan Holiday included some good quotes from Roman philosopher Seneca in a reading list email he sent last month. The two I liked are below:

On the happy life: “The more eagerly a man strives to reach it, the farther he recedes from it if he has made a mistake in the road; for when it leads in the opposite direction, his very speed will increase the distance that separates him.”

And the second: “Wherever there is a human being there is the opportunity for a kindness.”
