“written after he had worked for the Emperor Nero for fifteen years?”[edit]

How is that possible? He started working for Nero in AD 54 and was dead by AD 65. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2606:A000:450F:1B00:D5F2:F324:FF94:A865 (talk) 14:51, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

“dying every day”[edit]

I've taken out the "rather morbid" from "Seneca's rather morbid observation that we are dying every day".

The memento mortis is such an integral part of every pre-modern worldview, that calling it morbid only shows our distinctly modern mindset. In any case, such a disparaging subjective comment is out of place in this article.

Cheerio,
