The Delphic maxims are a collection of 147 apophthegmata (words of wisdom) said to have been imparted by Apollo through his intermediary, the Pythia. Although late antique scholars attributed these sayings to the Seven Sages of Greece, they were most likely traditional proverbs given divine authority through their association with Apollo and his sanctuary at Delphi. Rather than being absolutes, the maxims are intended to provide advice and guidance to individuals as they proceed through life. Our design features 41 of the 147 maxims including Know Thyself, Nothing To Excess, and Control Anger.
