    Sobre A Brevidade Da Vida é um ensaio moral escrito por Sêneca o Jovem, um filósofo estoico romano, para seu padrasto Paulinus. O filósofo nos traz muitos princípios estoicos sobre a natureza do tempo, principalmente a que os homens desperdiçam muito do seu próprio tempo em perseguições sem sentido. De acordo com o ensaio, a natureza dá ao homem tempo o suficiente para fazer o que é realmente importante e o indivíduo precisa permitir que isso aconteça propriamente.
