Publisher Comments:

In carefully selected and arranged quotations 2500 Years of Wisdom combines classic insights from writers and thinkers like Plato and Confucius, with aphorisms from the likes of Montaigne and Goethe.

Synopsis:

The wisdom from the greatest minds on earth... all in one place. 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.
