“Putting things off is the biggest waste of life: it snatches away each day as it comes, and denies us the present by promising the future.”
– Seneca, a wicked long time ago BC
Transcendentalists, philosophers, hippies, and raging fiends of today are united in one way: they’re just trying to live it up. Before TV, Angrybirds, or even ways to wash properly, people were already aware that lifetimes are left unlived and wasted with plans of foresight. Once in a while, I cross paths with people who cleverly devote their time being as alive as humanly possible.. I’m sure more than a few of us could use a lesson on how to live in the moment.
