Descrição da editora
Great sages like Sun-Tzu, Confucious, and Lao Tse all had their profound insights to share in the form of proverbs, or short messages that provide deep wisdom through simple statements. Collecting and writing down these ancient proverbs provided manuscripts that would impact the world for centuries and help to mold the course of civilization in extensive and meaningful ways, but many of the sages' insights in these texts were pretty weird. This book is like that, it does not shy away from weirdness and can offer fathoms of intellectual depth to the curious submariner who cares to delve into the dark and strange secrets of imaginative text. Compiled as a straightforward list of unconnected comments on philosophy, our conception of value within the universe, and dinosaurs, this book for the modern sage promises a thought-provoking series of interesting concepts for any reader (and probably some that make no sense, as well). This is not a book for those who want to understand everything they come in contact with; it is a book for people whose minds are halfway incomprehensible and who can see anything through a light of imagination. If nothing else, readers will find it is unlike anything they have ever read and (hopefully) vapidly entertaining in a lot of parts, too.
