It is clear from chapters 18 and 19 of De Brevitate Vitae that Paulinus was praefectus annonae , the official who superintended the grain supply of Rome, and was, therefore, a man of importance. He is also thought to be the father of another Pompeius Paulinus , who held high public posts under Nero Pliny , Nat. Furthermore, there are two known periods when Paulinus could have served as praefectus annonae, 48—55 and 62—71 AD, and scholars prefer the earlier period. Chapters 2 to 9 survey the many ways in which life is squandered and time frittered away by those people occupati engrossed in pointless pursuits. Chapters 10 to 17 contrast the philosophical approach to leisure otium with the deluded common approach.

Lucio Anneo Seneca: vita, opere, pensiero e analisi di De Brevitate Vitae
Maior pars mortalium, Pauline, de naturae malignitate conqueritur, quod in exiguum aevi gignimur, quod haec tam velociter, tam rapide dati nobis temporis spatia decurrant, adeo ut exceptis admodum paucis ceteros in ipso vitae apparatu vita destituat. Nec huic publico, ut opinantur, malo turba tantum et imprudens vulgus ingemuit; Clarorum quoque virorum hic affectus querellas euocavit. Nicht wenig Zeit haben wir, aber viel vergeuden wir. Satis longa uita et in maximarum rerum consummationem large data est, si tota bene collocaretur; Sed ubi per luxum ac neglegentiam diffluit, ubi nulli bonae rei impenditur, ultima demum necessitate cogente, quam ire non intelleximus transisse sentimus. Ita est: Non accipimus breuem vitam sed fecimus, nec inopes eius sed prodigi sumus. So ist es: Wir erhalten kein kurzes Leben, sondern machen es dazu, wir haben keinen Mangel daran, sonder gehen nur verschwenderisch damit um.
