The philosophy behind "Philosopher's Touch"

The "Philosopher's Touch" was made using countless letter beads to spell out actual quotes from famous thinkers of the world. They are below, in order:

 

Everything flows.

 

"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
