From the ancient till modern times, Greece has been the homeland for many important historical events and people who have marked the history of the country and have influenced the course of the world. People with talent, inspiration, and vision have set the grounds of modern civilization. Ancient thinkers words on life, success, courage and character hold true centuries later and can be just the pick-me-up we need, whatever the work day throws at us.
The Ancient Greek philosophers used few words, 'quotes', to express pearls of wisdom that stand up today as guidelines for living wisely and compassionately.
Philosopher of the 5th century BC
“The most difficult thing in life is to know yourself”
“Nothing is more active than thought, for it travels over the universe, and nothing is stronger than necessity for all must submit to it”
“There are three attributes for which I am grateful to Fortune: that I was born, first, human and not animal; second, man and not woman; and third, Greek and not barbarian”
“Hope is the only good that is common to all men; those who have nothing else possess hope still”
