The Greek land is a place of scientific and artistic creation from time immemorial. This album manifests the close relation between the land and its people. Eminent Greeks, known the world over, from Homer, the poet of the Odyssey and the Iliad, to modern composer Mikis Theodorakis; from Aristotle, the philosopher, to Nobel laureate Giorgos Seferis; from Hippocrates, the father of Medicine, to Dr. Papanikolaou (of the Pap test), all of whom have left significant traces of their creative work in texts, books and speeches. This beautiful book constitutes a timeless panorama of the sayings of these wise people as well as an album of the unique places that inspired Greek Wisdom throughout the ages.

• A selection of more than 150 sayings and quotes by Greek philosophers, writers, artists, poets, politicians, scientists and entrepreneurs, from antiquity till the present day

• An album of more than 500 colour photographs of the people and places all over Greece, captured especially for this volume
