Well Said: Do you know how to live?

You want to live — but do you know how to live? You are scared of dying — and, tell me, is the kind of life you lead really any different from being dead?
Seneca, Letters from a Stoic
Seneca lived in first century Rome but these words echo loudly through the modern mindset and lifestyle. They make me think of a much later quote from a very different person. The sentiment is the same though.
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.
Oscar Wilde
