Selected and translated by John Gallas
This anthology of thoughts seeks to be a various and portable nudger into the corners, plains and hilltops of all kinds of what might be called Wisdom. The poems and extracts selected here may be enough in themselves; kickers-on to bigger, longer, things, or no; touchpapers to bright thoughts either related or, in the end, unrelated to them; or a spur to read more of the same, be it poems or poets, or more writing of the thinking kind, philosophers and parsons. This collection of snippets is intended to stimulate, lead on to more. It is less an anthology, and more a trigger, leading the reader, as they dip and choose, read and leave, to whatever depth of thought in whatever area they might choose.
