Death Fixations, and Some Practical Advice (Ancient Egypt)

Creation myths, gods/goddesses, and words to live by from ancient Egyptian civilization.

“If you are powerful, gain respect through knowledge and pleasant speech.
Do not command unless it befits; hostility gets you into trouble.
Do not be arrogant lest you be humiliated,
Do not be silent lest you be rebuked.
When you reply to the speech of a hothead, avert your face and control yourself.
The ire of the hothead sweeps by; he who treads carefully, his path is clear.”
