Gelesen von LibriVox Volunteers

(5 Sterne; 10 Bewertungen)

300 short maxims by Spanish Jesuit Baltasar Gracian (1601-1658). The advice is still useful and insightful for our modern world. Gracian was considered one of the most interesting philosophers by both Nietzsche und Schopenhauer, and the latter translated The Art of Worldly Wisdom into German. This English translation was done by the famous Australian fairy-tale collector Joseph Jacobs (1854-1916). - Summary by Sandra Schmit (5 hr 27 min)
