A Quote by Heraclitus

If you do not hope, you will not win that which is not hoped for, since it is unattainable and inaccessible.

A Quote by Heraklietos of Ephesos on intelligence, common sense, truth, world, and road

Whosoever wishes to know about the world must learn about it in its particular details.
Knowledge is not intelligence.
In searching for the truth be ready for the unexpected.
Change alone is unchanging.
The same road goes both up and down.
The beginning of a circle is also its end.
Not I, but the world says it: all is one.
And yet everything comes in season.

A Quote by Heraclitus

You would not find the limits of the soul although you travelled every road: it has so deep a logos.

A Quote by Heraclitus

The river
where you set
your foot just now
is gone-
those waters giving way to this,
now this.
