Philotimo’ – an Ancient Greek ideal that runs through the veins of Greeks and Greek history. Philotimo encompasses the concepts of pride in self, pride in family, pride in community, and doing the right thing – despite the cost to oneself. Philotimo is an all-encompassing concept that gives meaning to life that stretches well beyond ourselves. There is no direct English translation for this living aspiration, and Philotimia’s essence resonates with our core Elysium Values. We are proud to hold Philotimo as one of our Values that defines what Elysium believes in, sacrifice, honour, respect.
“What we do now echoes in eternity.” ― Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor and Philosopher – an extract written in Greek in his personal reflections ‘Meditations of Marcus Aurelius’
“What we do now in our lifetime echoes through eternity, let our actions reflect the spirit of Philotimo” – André Sidler – Elysium Founder and CEO
