Heraclitus by Johannes Moreelse circa 1630
It is difficult to fight against anger, for a man will buy revenge with his soul. Heracleitus, 500 B.C.Found on The Abode of McThag, via View From The Porch.
Looking for a picture of Heracleitus (a.k.a. "the weeping philosopher") I stumbled on this. I don't know where they got this accent or this pronounciation, but it doesn't sound anything like I would pronounce it, but then I'm part neanderthal, so what do I know?
