Pythagoras

Geburtstag: 585 v.Chr
Todesdatum: 495 v.Chr
Andere Namen: Ze Samu Pýthagorás

Pythagoras von Samos war ein antiker griechischer Philosoph und Gründer einer einflussreichen religiös-philosophischen Bewegung. Als Vierzigjähriger verließ er seine griechische Heimat und wanderte nach Süditalien aus. Dort gründete er eine Schule und betätigte sich auch politisch. Trotz intensiver Bemühungen der Forschung gehört er noch heute zu den rätselhaftesten Persönlichkeiten der Antike. Manche Historiker zählen ihn zu den Pionieren der beginnenden griechischen Philosophie, Mathematik und Naturwissenschaft, andere meinen, er sei vorwiegend oder ausschließlich ein Verkünder religiöser Lehren gewesen. Möglicherweise konnte er diese Bereiche verbinden. Die nach ihm benannten Pythagoreer blieben auch nach seinem Tod kulturgeschichtlich bedeutsam.

„Wisdom thoroughly learned, will never be forgotten.“

—  Pythagoras

The Sayings of the Wise (1555)
Kontext: Wisdom thoroughly learned, will never be forgotten.
Science is got by diligence; but Discretion and Wisdom cometh of GOD. <!-- p. 128

„It is better wither to be silent, or to say things of more value than silence.“

—  Pythagoras

As quoted in A Dictionary of Thoughts: Being a Cyclopedia of Laconic Quotations from the Best Authors of the World, both Ancient and Modern (1908) by Tyron Edwards, p. 525
Kontext: It is better wither to be silent, or to say things of more value than silence. Sooner throw a pearl at hazard than an idle or useless word; and do not say a little in many words, but a great deal in a few.

„Know that death comes to everyone, and that wealth will sometimes be acquired, sometimes lost.“

—  Pythagoras

As quoted in Divine Harmony: The Life and Teachings of Pythagoras by John Strohmeier and Peter Westbrook. (1999)
The Golden Verses
Kontext: Know that death comes to everyone, and that wealth will sometimes be acquired, sometimes lost. Whatever griefs mortals suffer by divine chance, whatever destiny you have, endure it and do not complain. But it is right to improve it as much as you can, and remember this: Fate does not give very many of these griefs to good people.

„Let not sleep fall upon thy eyes till thou has thrice reviewed the transactions of the past day.“

—  Pythagoras

As translated in The Rambler No. 8 http://etext.lib.virginia.edu/etcbin/toccer-new2?id=Joh1Ram.sgm&images=images/modeng&data=/texts/english/modeng/parsed&tag=public&part=8&division=div1 (14 April 1750) by Samuel Johnson
Let not sleep e'er close thy eyes
Without thou ask thyself: What have I omitted and what done?
Abstain thou if 'tis evil; persevere if good.
As translated by Fabre d'Olivet
Do not let sleep close your tired eyes until you have three times gone over the events of the day. 'What did I do wrong? What did I accomplish? What did I fail to do that I should have done?' Starting from the beginning, go through to the end. Then, reproach yourself for the things you did wrong, and take pleasure in the good things you did.
As quoted in Divine Harmony: The Life and Teachings of Pythagoras by John Strohmeier and Peter Westbrook. (1999)
The Golden Verses
Kontext: Let not sleep fall upon thy eyes till thou has thrice reviewed the transactions of the past day. Where have I turned aside from rectitude? What have I been doing? What have I left undone, which I ought to have done? Begin thus from the first act, and proceed; and, in conclusion, at the ill which thou hast done, be troubled, and rejoice for the good.

„Meditate upon my counsels; love them; follow them;
To the divine virtues will they know how to lead thee.“

—  Pythagoras

As translated by Fabre d'Olivet
The Golden Verses
Kontext: Meditate upon my counsels; love them; follow them;
To the divine virtues will they know how to lead thee.
I swear it by the One who in our hearts engraved
The sacred Tetrad, symbol immense and pure,
Source of Nature and model of the Gods.

„It is better to suffer, than to do, wrong.“

—  Pythagoras

The Sayings of the Wise (1555)
Kontext: It is better to suffer, than to do, wrong. <!-- p. 164

„Many words befall men, mean and noble alike; do not be astonished by them, nor allow yourself to be constrained.“

—  Pythagoras

As quoted in Divine Harmony: The Life and Teachings of Pythagoras by John Strohmeier and Peter Westbrook. (1999)
The Golden Verses
Kontext: Many words befall men, mean and noble alike; do not be astonished by them, nor allow yourself to be constrained.
If a lie is told, bear with it gently.
But whatever I tell you, let it be done completely.
Let no one persuade you by word or deed to do or say whatever is not best for you.

„You will know that wretched men are the cause of their own suffering, who neither see nor hear the good that is near them, and few are the ones who know how to secure release from their troubles.“

—  Pythagoras

As quoted in Divine Harmony: The Life and Teachings of Pythagoras by John Strohmeier and Peter Westbrook (1999)
The Golden Verses
Kontext: You will know that wretched men are the cause of their own suffering, who neither see nor hear the good that is near them, and few are the ones who know how to secure release from their troubles. Such is the fate that harms their minds; like pebbles they are tossed about from one thing to another with cares unceasing. For the dread companion Strife harms them unawares, whom one must not walk behind, but withdraw from and flee.

„It is requisite to choose the most excellent life; for custom will make it pleasant.“

—  Pythagoras

"Pythagorean Ethical Sentences From Stobæus" (1904)
Florilegium
Kontext: It is requisite to choose the most excellent life; for custom will make it pleasant. Wealth is an infirm anchor, glory is still more infirm; and in a similar manner, the body, dominion, and honour. For all these are imbecile and powerless. What then are powerful anchors. Prudence, magnanimity, fortitude. These no tempest can shake. This is the Law of God, that virtue is the only thing that is strong; and that every thing else is a trifle.

„None but a Craftsman can judge of a craft.“

—  Pythagoras

The Sayings of the Wise (1555)
Kontext: None but a Craftsman can judge of a craft. <!-- p. 161

„There is no word or action but has its echo in Eternity.“

—  Pythagoras

As quoted in Pythagoron: The Religious, Moral, and Ethical Teachings of Pythagoras (1947) by Hobart Huson, p. 99
Kontext: There is no word or action but has its echo in Eternity.
Thought is an Idea in transit, which when once released, never can be lured back, nor the spoken word recalled. Nor ever can the overt act be erased All that thou thinkest, sayest, or doest bears perpetual record of itself, enduring for Eternity.

„Envy has been, is, and shall be, the destruction of many.“

—  Pythagoras

The Sayings of the Wise (1555)
Kontext: Envy has been, is, and shall be, the destruction of many. What is there, that Envy hath not defamed, or Malice left undefiled? Truly, no good thing.
