On Worldliness & Retirement

"There's thunder even on the loftiest peaks," said Maecenas. Seneca quoted this line to Lucilius to make a point that even the highest stations like government positions come with their own share of troubles. For this reason, he urges Lucilius to retreat from public life and reclaim his time. He plays the part of Lucilius by asking "How can I take my leave?" Seneca responds by saying, "Anyway you please". --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/winradiohour/support
