This book contains a set of wisdom pieces of ancient Greece, in terms of maxims and quotations of the seven sages of ancient Greece.
The seven sages were Thales, Pittacos, Bias, Solon, Cleovoulos, Periandros, and Chilon. They lived in ancient Greece over 600 years B.C. and before the advent of the classical Greek philosophers, like Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, etc.
Their maxims and quotations set the background for the development of the classical Greek philosophy.
This book contains 2 chapters and two appendices: Chapter 1: The maxims of the Oracle of Delphi, Chapter 2: The quotations of the seven sages of ancient Greece, Appendix A: The maxims of the Oracle of Delphi, in ancient Greek and in English.
Appendix B: The quotations of the seven sages, in ancient Greek and in English.
The purpose of this book is to offer any reader a very simple guide into the wisdom of ancient Greece, and possibly allow him or her to gain some better undertanding of this very old wisdom, and therefore see with their own ‘eyes’ and soul how these can help them in their every-day life..
The transalation of the maxims and quotations into English were done by the author on the basis of the original texts in both ancient Greek and modern Greek.
I am responsible for any errors and ommissions in the translation, hoping that the reader will excuse me in this very difficult and demanding task.
