HERACLITUS - A RARE BREED OF GREEK PHILOSOPHERS

The life of philosopher always gives deep insights to tread  a path of perfection.   One such Greek philosopher whose profound wisdom inspires is  Heraclitus ( c. 535 – c. 475 BCE), a pre-Socratic Greek philosopher and  a native of the Greek city Ephesus.  He is like Gautam Buddha or Lao Tzu, but the Greek soil was absolutely  unkind  for him.

He is one of the most highly penetrating souls.

His famous saying :  "No man ever steps in the same river twice"  He believed in the unity of opposites, stating that "the path up and down are one and the same"

 He says that Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.


His immortal quote is  “ Big results require big ambitions”
