Book Review: Pearls of Wisdom by John Kyriazoglou

Periodically, I do book reviews for Greek authors and other authors. Recently, I did a book review for John Kyriazoglou's book Pearls of Wisdom.

"It is known that ancient Greece contributed much to western civilization, including politics, art, literature, and philosophy. In this book, Mr. Kyriazoglou has carefully combined ancient Greek maxims and quotations from such famous resources as the Oracle of Delphi and the Seven Sages, as well as Greek philosophers to be applied to our hectic, modern life. The author believes that by reflecting and applying these “pearls of wisdom” modern individuals as well as businesses would lead better lives.

These ancient quotations are priceless and timeless. Thousands of years after they were written, we can still benefit greatly from what ancient wisdom offers. One of my favorite quotes from the book is by Pericles: “What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.”

The author uses excellent examples of how these ancient Greek maxims and quotations are relevant today. I highly recommend reading this book, which will be an important resource for every person intent on bettering his or her life as well as the environment around them."
