Reflection for a Life Worth Living


If we abide by the common definition of philosophy as the love of wisdom, that philosophy is the art of learning to die, then living wisely is the art of learning how you will wish to have lived.

This is where the wisdom of lives that have already been lived can be of immense aid — a source of forward-facing resolutions, borrowed from people who have long died, having lived, they still live, by any reasonable standard, honourable and generous lives, lives of beauty and substance, irradiated by ideas that have endured across the epochs to make other lives more liveable.

Then, live wisely. Learning with other's lives and with your “old lives”.
