Stewie the Stoic: Debt


[Quotes by Seneca]

[Lucilius is retiring — a wealthy man. Whom he chooses and befriends in retirement, what he may give them as he whittles down is possessions is spoken of. Seneca then speaks of how gifts should be bequeathed: “…consider that it is more important who receives a thing, than what it is he receives.” Someone who might owe you a large debt may no longer be your friend. In turn, you owing another great sums would be considered an affront, perhaps you yourself would be considered the villain.]
