postcard, Shakticard No. 82
text on the back: Das Schöne bewundern, das Wahre behüten, das Gute beschließen
(Engl. Admire the Beautiful, guard the True, decide on the Good.)

This postcard text is inspired by 2 philosophers. Socrates (469 - 399 BC) coined the concept of the 3 virtues - the good, the true and the beautiful - and valued it as the highest cultural values. The anthroposophical philosopher Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) took up this. In his poem it says:

Admire the beautiful,
To guard the truth
,
Adore the noble,
Decide on the good,
It guides people
To aim in life
In acting to the right,
In feeling at peace
In thinking to the light;
And teaches him to trust
To divine rule
In all there is:
In the universe,
In the ground of soul.
