Delphic Maxim of the Week- Live without sorrow.
This Week's Delphic Maxim is Ἀλύπως βίου.
Ἀλύπως βίου | Live without sorrow
“The man without regret and sorrow is king. While it is prudent to sometimes reflect the past, look what you could have done better, live for the opportunity you have, for the things you can build in the future. Regret of past mistakes, sorrow from loss; if you bathe in such emotions, they can overtake you and ruin your life. All the sages of Antiquity have emphasized that the noble is steadfast even in times of loss. It is not prudent to lose oneself in regret and sadness, but train yourself to be calm and focus on making things better in the future, rather than become a slave of the past.”
A weekly Maxim is posted every Monday on the Hearth of Hellenism Twitter.
