Seneca - What a Wise Man!
A number of our blessings do us harm, for memory brings back the agony of fear, while foresight brings it on prematurely. No one confines his unhappiness to the present. ~Seneca, Roman philosopher and politician, Letters to Lucilius
There is no unhappiness in the present moment. If you find yourself unhappy, check your thoughts, watch them float by as you are the observer......they are but memories of something that has already occurred or an anticipation of a fear or anxiety of the future.
