100 citações sobre sabedoria: Recolha as 100 citações de

Seleccionámos para si 100 grandes citações sobre sabedoria. Todos sabemos o que é a sabedoria: a capacidade de pensar e agir usando conhecimento, experiência, compreensão, senso comum, e discernimento. A sabedoria tem sido considerada como uma das quatro virtudes cardinais; e como uma virtude, é um hábito ou disposição para realizar a acção com o mais alto grau de adequação em qualquer circunstância. Isto implica uma posse de conhecimento ou a procura do mesmo para o aplicar à circunstância em questão. Isto implica uma compreensão de pessoas, objectos, eventos, situações, e a vontade, bem como a capacidade de aplicar a percepção, julgamento e acção de acordo com a compreensão do que é o curso de acção ideal. Muitas vezes requer o controlo das reacções emocionais (as 'paixões') para que o princípio universal da razão prevaleça para determinar a própria acção. Em suma, a sabedoria é uma disposição para encontrar a verdade aliada a um julgamento óptimo sobre quais as acções que devem ser empreendidas. Estas citações ajudá-lo-ão a pensar, a agir, a meditar para alcançar uma espécie de sabedoria. Uma grande citação é muito semelhante a um grande pensamento e a um pequeno poema. Pode encapsular uma grande teia de ideias, pensamentos, reflexões, emoções em poucas palavras. O leitor de uma grande citação é forçado a pensar sobre o que acabou de ouvir. Ele tem de pensar sobre essas palavras e o que elas significam. Uma excelente citação exige que o leitor faça uma pausa para contemplar o verdadeiro significado e poesia de algumas palavras. Um grande pensamento atinge um nível de universalidade. As citações atingem duramente a essência do ser humano. A citação certa pode ajudar-nos a ver alguns significados invisíveis de coisas ou assuntos. O leque de autores dessas 100 citações sobre sabedoria é muito vasto: de Mark Twain a Winston Churchill, de Leonardo da Vinci a Albert Einstein, Sun Tzu, Mahatma Gandhi, de Dalai Lama a Henry Ford. Tire partido do conhecimento e da inteligência de todos esses sábios !

A Modest Proposal

A Modest Proposal

Author: Jonathan Swift Narrator: John Gonzales Release Date: 01/01/2017

In a time when poor Irish families struggled to feed their children, Jonathan Swift wrote an essay, which he published anonymously, making a few suggestions. He called it `A Modest Proposal‘ (1729) or `A Modest Proposal for Preventing the Children of Poor People from Being a Burthen to their Parents, or the Country, and for Making them Beneficial to the Publick.‘The solution was simple: Fatten up the undernourished children and sell them as food for the rich. Everybody wins! Though written in a serious tone, the humour in this essay is undeniable, and so is its mocking of the heartless attitudes towards poor people.

A Modest Proposal

Author: Jonathan Swift Narrator: Seth Thompson Release Date: 01/02/2020

Experience one of the most jarring and influential satirical essays in this InAudio production of A Modest Proposalby Jonathan Swift.In one of the most well-known works of satire, Jonathan Swift puts forth a “modest proposal.” Swift begins by outlining the suffering that the starving beggars in Ireland experience daily. He paints a grim picture of the plight these people face to help the reader relate to the situation, before turning the tables and suggesting that to alleviate the economic troubles of the poor, their children could be sold as food to the upper class. The shock from this sudden change is expounded by Swift’s continued explanation of the proposal, including cooking instructions and analysis of the economic benefits to eating children.This work of irony and satire was written to draw attention to the subhuman treatment of the poor people by the upper-class citizens of Ireland, but the satirical messages are still impactful to the modern reader.

A Modest Proposal

A Modest Proposal

Author: Jonathan Swift Narrator: John Gonzalez Release Date: 01/05/2021

A Modest Proposal is a Juvenalian satirical essay written and published anonymously by Jonathan Swift. Swift suggests that the impoverished Irish might ease their economic troubles by selling their children as food for rich gentlemen and ladies. This satirical hyperbole mocked heartless attitudes towards the poor, as well as British policy toward the Irish in general. In English writing, the phrase 'a modest proposal' is now conventionally an allusion to this style of straight-faced satire. Swift goes to great lengths to support his argument, including a list of possible preparation styles for the children, and calculations showing the financial benefits of his suggestion. He uses methods of argument throughout his essay which lampoon the then-influential William Petty and the social engineering popular among followers of Francis Bacon. These lampoons include appealing to the authority of 'a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London' and 'the famous Psalmanazar, a native of the island Formosa' (who had already confessed to not being from Formosa in 1706). As part of our mission to publish great works of literary fiction and nonfiction, Sheba Blake Publishing Corp. is extremely dedicated to bringing to the forefront the amazing works of long dead and truly talented authors.

A Modest Proposal and Other Writings

A Modest Proposal and Other Writings

Author: Jonathan Swift Narrator: Norman Dietz Release Date: 01/01/1989

Easing poverty in Ireland by eating the children of the poor was the satirical "solution" suggested by Jonathan Swift in his essay "A Modest Proposal" (1729). Here Swift unleashes the full power of his ironic armory and corrosive wit, striking his targets-the ruling class and avaricious landlords-with deadly precision. This masterly essay is accompanied by a generous selection of prose works, among them humorous pamphlets critiquing British rule in his native Ireland, articles and correspondence, a loving eulogy to his beloved "Stella," the daughter of a house servant whom he mentored, and pieces on such diverse subjects as the nature of broomsticks, the joys of punning, and comical rules for servants.
