20 Aphorisms

A set of twenty inspiring aphorisms cards with short sentences and large truths.

Aphorisms are short, pithy statements designed to provoke a thrill of recognition at valuable, amusing, dark and perhaps awkward truths.

We've selected twenty of our favourite aphorisms from across history and printed them on stiff card, ready to be sent to a friend or to sit on your desk for inspiration.

 Example Aphorisms: 

  • ‘Life consists in what a man is thinking all day.’ Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • ‘Govern a great nation as you would cook a small fish. Don’t overdo it.’ Lao Tzu

  • ‘The proof of good parenting: that the child has no desire to be famous.’ F. Scott Fitzgerald
