In Reply to: Humans, wisdom, Shakespeare: 'To thine own self be true' posted by Ion Saliu on June 21, 2001.

: : To thine own self be true, for it must follow as dost the night the day, that canst not then be false to any man.

: • Absolutely great!
: I don’t know who the author is. Sounds like Shakespeare, but it could also be Tladouqué, or someone else.
: Humans have created so much Wisdom! Yet, the species will still be extinct after who knows how long. That’s nothing compared to the extinction of the solar system. And that, in turn, is Nothing, compared to the Big Crunch of the Universe!

• I left out a very important element. There is an abundance of wisdom in human history. But there is an equally unparalleled amount of cruelty in human history.

Ion Saliu

It's Shakespeare inspired by Socrates. (Know thyself.)
