Well Cicero had a point, didn't he? I must lay hands on some Cicero and Epicurus, never read them sadly.“Cicero said that he was “half a prisoner.” But in very truth, never will the wise man resort to so lowly a term, never will be be half a prisoner. He who always possesses an undiminished and stable liberty, being free and his own master and towering over all others. For what can possibly be above him who is above Fortune?”
Seneca, On the Shortness of Life.
