Written around twenty-five hundred years ago, Heraclitus declared that energy is the essence of the matter, that everything becomes energy in flux, in relativity. Fragments if a form of collected writings by the Greek, since the title and the context of the Book both suggest that.
Many consider Heraclitus one of the earliest philosophers and his writing is the only piece that conveys that. The text surviving for almost 2500 years, there must something about it. His writing style is unique, his way of conveying the wisdom is one of its kind. Reading these passages are soothing and they enforce the reader to think about for a very long time. The basic consideration that Heraclitus takes into is the mankind and everything that falls under its nature. He talks about nature and the cycle of the universe in proses.
My favorite point of his writing is that he has put enough emphasis on the inner self. I think that is why Heraclitus is considered a master of many modern-day philosophers.
Applicants of wisdom do what I have done: inquire within.
Many of the ideas he speaks about are familiar to us. It is just another way of reminding ourselves the simplicity of life. If you decide to pick this book and try to observe the wisdom, I hope you find what you are looking for.
It is a quick, short piece of writing that you can read in an hour. The amount of wisdom it owns and offers is the reason why one should consider reading it.
The habit of knowledge is not human but divine.
