Oinoanda: “What the Truth Was Before it Turned into Ruins”

Even if you carve the truth on a gigantic rock mass, in the end, there will be no one to understand it. It will eventually merge into the soil and keep waiting to be understood. As human beings occupy themselves with empty beliefs instead of searching for the truth, we should take it our destiny to ask curious and wailing questions wondering “what the truth was before it turned into ruins”

– Quote from the documentary “Gigantic Jigsaw Puzzle: The Epicurean Inscription of Diogenes of Oinoanda
