The Shortness of Life: Seneca on Busyness and the Art of Living Wide Rather Than Living Long | Brain Pickings

Your first look into brain pickings. I should not have to post anymore articles from this woman and her website. Although I certainly will, her interpretations and analysis of literature are unmatched by anyone her age. Maria Papova is a reader you should look up to. Remember it’s not what you take in but what you do with what you take in.

This is basically a telescope into my mind. Not of what comes out of it necessarily, but more of a collection of all the information I put inside of my brain. If it stimulates some part of my intellect or a strange interest, you’ll find it here. If it’s something I have read, there will be a link to it. If it’s something I have written, read it with an open mind because it has been filtered through my reading. If it’s a video of me, or a recording of what I say, I hope you enjoy.
