“Wisdom Illustrated” – New Book
This one is a collection of quotes from many times and cultures dealing with 23 topics – desire, death, man and woman, anger and hatred, love, meditation, God, etc., etc. The idea is to show that wise men and women from all traditions say the same things – often in the same words, after translation.
The illustrations are my own – sometimes straightforward visual comments on the topic at hand; sometimes abstract (or just plain weird) impressions that came from my subconscious but seem to be relevant. The artwork won’t appeal to everyone, but the words should – or at least most of them. There is so much emphasis on the differences between religions, philosophies, and cultures – it seems worthwhile to highlight the many things they have in common, at least in the minds of the wise. It’s priced reasonably and available here.
