“THERE are three guides for the life of man. First is principle, which has been long and carefully tested; the second is experience, strengthened by long practice; and third, the authority of those ancients who could not have been easily deceived by anyone, and who appear not to have wished to deceive others. Attend more to what a man has done than to what he has said, for many speak well but few act well.”
“The best principle for living is to think, and to do your utmost to live in harmony with the mind, for this is to live for ever and to live happily. For it is in the mind that stability and peace are found.”
Marsilio Ficino [1433 – 1499]
