Day 75: March 16 – Wisdom Is A Treasure For All Time

~ Delphi

Garden Obelisk

Of those whose accounts I have heard, no one comes so far as to recognize that the wise is set apart from all things.

It is better to hide folly than to make it public.

It is not good for men to get what they want.

To be self-controlled is the greatest excellence. And wisdom is speaking the truth and acting with knowledge in accordance with nature.

~ Heraclitus
