This book of carefully selected and arranged quotations, each
elevating and expanding upon the last, represents the greatest
philosophical thoughts mankind has produced in its attempt to
come to a deeper understanding of the human condition. Combining
classic expressions from giants, such as Plato and Confucius,
with aphorisms of accepted masters, such as Montaigne and Goethe,
this book also blends the genius of lesser-known lights, such
as Baltazar Gracien and Simone Weil. The result is a magnificent
and harmonious symphony of humanity’s deepest convictions, crossing
the boundaries of culture and time.
“That is the principal thing: not to remain with the dream, with
the intention, with the being in the mood, but always forcibly
to convert it into all things.”
