Philosopher's Touch


  Just one of many unique sections of the original "World's Longest Necklace"  



About this panel:

The "Philosopher's Touch" was made using countless letter beads to spell out actual quotes from famous thinkers of the world.


Everything flows.


Why it's special

The quotes are below, in order:

 "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

- George Santayana, Life of Reason

"Quod bonum est, bonos facit." (Translated: That which is good makes men good.)

- Seneca, Epistulae Ad Cucilium

"Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding."

-Albert Einstein, Notes on Pacifism


"Therefore the sage while clad in homespun conceals on his person a priceless piece of jade."

- Lao Tsu


"Ich habe viel in der Welt versucht und immer dasselbe gefunden." (Translated: I have tried much in this world but always found the same.)

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Wilhelm Meisters Wanderjahre, 1. Buch


"One day, with life and heart, is more than time enough to find a world."

- James Russell Lowell, Columbus


"The pearl is a disease of the oyster. A poem is a disease of the spirit caused by the irritation of a granule of truth fallen into that soft gray bivalve we call the mind."

- Christopher Morley, Bivalves


"Demut kennt nicht der matte, feige, schwankende Mann, sondern nur der kraftvolle, mutige und entschlossene." (Translated: Humility is not known by the weak, cowardly, wavering man, but only by the strong, courageous and resolving one.)

- Perthes


"I am free from desire and the people of themselves become simple like the uncarved block."

- Lao Tsu


"L'amour n'est pas tous, mais sans l'amour tout est rien." (Translated: Love is not everything, but without it everything is nothing.)

- French proverb


"Forgiveness is better than revenge, for forgiveness is the sign of a gentle nature, but revenge the sign of a savage nature."

- Epictetus, Fragments No. 68


"No man can justly censure or condemn another, because indeed no man truly knows another."

- Sir Thomas Browne, Religio Medici, pt 11, sec. 4


"Thou shalt sleep in thy clouds, careless of the voice of the morning."

- MacPherson, Ossian: Address to the sun


How a panel is made >

Currently, we are working to make the future Love, Peace and Beads Museum a reality. It will be a place with marvelous exhibits from around the world, and of course the Neverending Necklace.

Until then, you may be able to get up close to the panels during select events. Or see all of them right here, online forever.

The beads on this panel have not been dedicated yet. Once these beads have been assigned, you can find the list of dedications and their numbers in the Journal.

Beads are simple things: to make a necklace, beads can be arranged in any pattern, using any shape or color. No matter their size, origin or material, the finished necklace always comes out beautiful.

Just as it ought to be with people in a functioning community.

The Neverending Necklace is the very core and spine of the Love & Peace Project. More so than any other symbol, it helps visualize love and compassion we have for others. Accepting and embracing all.
