Sailing on Lake Titicaca, Peru

“If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.” – Seneca, Epistle LXXI, Letters to Lucilius (full text in English)

In French (since the initial text is in Latin):

"Qui ne sait pas vers quel port il doit tendre n’a pas de vent qui lui soit bon." – Sénèque, lettre LXXI, Lettres à Lucilius (full text in French)

Seneca's 124 philosophical letters are surprisingly modern – and sometimes quite funny – although they were written in 63–64 AD at the dawn of his life. I'll maybe share in a later post some of the quotes that I captured from reading them.
