To bear trials with a calm mind
robs misfortune of its strength and burden.”
Seneca, Hercules Oetaeus, 231-232
What would our deaths look like if we approached then with that same calm and disciplined mind? That powerful mind, in those times of trouble, will bring more comfort than any amount of religiosity or philosophical phrases.
The prepared mind is prepared to die, too.
