That Which Is Esteemed by Men | Quote by Spinoza



The ordinary surroundings of life which are esteemed by men (as their actions testify) to be the highest good, may be classed under the three heads — Riches, Fame, and the Pleasures of Sense: with these three the mind is so absorbed that it has little power to reflect on any different good.

~Spinoza (1632 - 1677)
