“But what difference does it make who spoke the words? They were uttered for the world.”
—Seneca, ancient Roman Stoic philosopher, statesman, and dramatist
The Quotable Coach blog recently surpassed its 2500th post. The vast majority of the quotes that inspire these posts are not mine. They represent nuggets of wisdom offered to the world from many brilliant individuals, including Seneca. I do my best to offer the correct attribution whenever possible.
I admire and appreciate Seneca’s sincere words and generosity of spirit intending to support others without seeking credit.
When we interpret and share our views of these lessons and come up with some of our own, we too can release our own generous efforts to serve and support others.
Where and with whom do you pay forward words of wisdom from others in your communities? How does this deepen the value and impact these lessons have had on your life?
