Life: 6th – 5th century BCE

Heraclitus of Ephesus was a Greek philosopher. He was often referred to as “The Obscure Philosopher” mainly due to his eccentric nature and his enigmatic philosophy and thoughts.

Heraclitus alongside Diogenes of Sinope are my two favorite Greek philosophers and here below I’ve listed five quotes by this great Mystic philosopher.

Heraclitus Quote - Couples are wholes and not wholes...

Couples are wholes and not wholes, what agrees disagrees, the concordant is discordant. From all things one and from one all things.
Heraclitus (On the Universe – Fragment 54)

Heraclitus Quote - No man ever steps in the same river twice

No man ever steps in the same river twice.
Heraclitus (On the Universe – Fragment 41)

Heraclitus Quote - Everything flows, nothing stands still

Everything flows, nothing stands still.
Heraclitus (Quoted by Plato in Craytulus)

Heraclitus Quote - The world is the same for all...

This world, which is the same for all, no one of gods or men has made. But it always was and will be: an ever-living fire, with measures of it kindling, and measures going out.
Heraclitus (On the Universe – Fragment 20)

Heraclitus Quote - He who hears not me but the logos...

He who hears not me but the logos will say: All is one.
Heraclitus (On the Universe – Fragment 50)
