Delphic Maxim of the Week 7/3
Εὐγνώμων γίνου | Be Grateful
This week’s Delphic Maxim from the Delphic Oracle deck is, Εὐγνώμων γίνου | Be Grateful.
“A person who cannot be grateful can not develop virtue. We all depend on so many things outside of ourselves: The civilization built by millennia of people before us, our country, the city which shelters us, the society our ancestors created an upheld. Then of course our parents who raised us, friends and people around us, who bear with us, even in times when we are not easy to take, and of course the Gods who guided people and societies to prosper, to give you opportunities. A man who knows not gratitude, for whom even the best is never good enough, is a wretch, undeserving.”
