Title : 80 aphorisms and maxims
Author : Louis-Claude de Saint Martin
Description : One of the gifts of the spirit, according to Saint-Martin, is " to desire ardently the manifestation of the Kingdom. " Besides writings on mysticism, politics, and ethics, the work of the "Theosopher of Amboise" contains many spiritual maxims and aphorisms of great beauty and great acuteness. The few published hereafter, in the unsurpassed translation of Arthur E. White, will introduce the reader to the thought of the founder of a corporate school of classical theosophy, so strong that it is still alive today, and has greatly influenced the philosophy and spirituality of the last two centuries. They also present Saint-Martin in the aspect of a litterary man, and we can learn from them that he loved his books, mainly in his
capacity as a philosopher, for the truths which were contained in them, as apostle for the mission which they represented, but also and certainly as author for the children of his talent; although as a discerning father, he occasionally sorrowed at their imperfection.
