In the 21st century the world has given birth to a ‘status’, a new hybrid of the real and the virtual. The internet has brought together the old and the young, the romantic and the realist, the guileless and the shrewd. Using our imagination, we can assume that Twitter and Facebook have existed from the ancient times. In this case, all great minds and their well-known quotes can be labelled as ‘status’: Goethe, Homer, Bernard Shaw, Mark Twain, Julius Caesar and others live in this space side by side.
The book is a history of human intellect that unites great minds regardless of their nationality, historical period, belief and biography. Their witty quotes often give more food for thought than thick volumes.
