Xenophanes of Colophon (circa 570 – 475 B.C.E.) was a Greek philosopher, theologian, poet, and social and religious critic. He lived a life of travel, leaving Ionia at the age of 25 and continuing to travel throughout the Greek world for another 67 years. Some scholars say he lived in exile in Sicily for a time. Knowledge of his views comes from fragments of his poetry, surviving as quotations by later Greek writers.
Quotes by Xenophanes…
It takes a wise man to discover a wise man.
Without effort, he rules all things by the power of his mind.
