Whoever gives his labor for money sells himself and puts himself in the rank of slaves. (Cicero)
Death is the release from all pain and complete cessation, beyond which our suffering will not extend. It will return us to that condition of tranquility, which we had enjoyed before we were born. Should anyone mourn the deceased, then he must also mourn the unborn. (Seneca)
