  • The Pocket Oracle and Art of Prudence

    Baltasar Gracian

    Product Code: AAWVE
    Paperback
    Written over 350 years ago, "The Pocket Oracle and the Art of Prudence" is a charming collection of 300 witty and thought-provoking aphorisms. From the art of being lucky to the healthy use of caution, these elegant maxims were created as a guide to life, with further suggestions given on cultivating good taste, knowing how to refuse, the foolishness of complaining and the wisdom of controlling one's passions. Baltasar Gracian intended that these ingenious aphorisms would encourage each reader to challenge themselves both in understanding and applying each axiom.
