Bits of Wisdom #16 : Thucydides

20190808-Thucydides.001

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.

THUCYDIDES

Historian of the 4th century BC

“It is frequently a misfortune to have very brilliant men in charge of affairs. They expect too much of ordinary men”

“History is Philosophy teaching by examples”
