What to bring with you to the next world?

Posted by Fredsvenn on December 21, 2015

“The soul takes nothing with her to the next world but her education and her culture. At the beginning of the journey to the next world, one’s education and culture can either provide the greatest assistance, or else act as the greatest burden, to the person who has just died.”

― Plato, The Republic of Plato

  1. Never truer words been said… especially the part: “one’s education and culture can either provide the greatest assistance, or else act as the greatest burden, to the person who has just died”. Education and culture never guarantee the acquirement of true wisdom.
