Publisher's Summary

Ancient philosophy provides us with timeless wisdom while bringing a new light on the way modern thought has been shaped by building on the ancient masters. This audiobook is a careful compilation of essential quotes summarizing each one of the great masters' fundamental ideas.

Learn Stoicism from the teachings of both Marcus Aurelius, the emperor, and Epictetus the slave, each one intent on his own quest for the best possible life; discover the essence of ideas, logic and philosophy with Aristotle and his pupil Plato; open wide the gates of oriental philosophy with the masters of Zen enlightenment, Confucius and Gautama Buddha. Taken from immortal works, these excerpts will add to your culture and inspire you on the road of your own self-improvement.

Sagely advise never sounded so good!!!

Acres of diamonds and fields of wisdom have never been so accessible as this. The tree of knowledge is in full bloom and like a thousand tiny angels dancing on the head of a pin, this brilliantly organized ancient compendium of philosophical insight dazzles and delights the mind.

Wonderfully narrated, this title was everything I expected and more!!! From Aristotle to the Buddha, this collection of sagely advice truly stands as one of the best titles I've listened to "repeatedly" since I downloaded it a few days ago.

I'd highly recommend giving it a listen if you spend a lot time on the road as I do or even perhaps giving it as a gift to a friend.

What a great voice and work ! Great investment

Some people make a great effort to speak every single word with respect. This is one of these rare cases. I listened to the 600 quotes 3 times in 2 days. Great investment !
