Quotations from Socrates:

 So now, Athenian men, more than on my own behalf must I defend myself, as some may think, but on your behalf, so that you may not make a mistake concerning the gift of god by condemning me.

For if you kill me, you will not easily find another such person at all, even if to say in a ludicrous way, attached on the city by the god, like on a large and well-bred horse, by its size and laziness both needing arousing by some gadfly; in this way the god seems to have fastened me on the city, some such one who arousing and persuading and reproaching each one of you I do not stop the whole day settling down all over.

Thus such another will not easily come to you, men, but if you believe me, you will spare me; but perhaps you might possibly be offended, like the sleeping who are awakened, striking me, believing Anytus, you might easily kill, then the rest of your lives you might continue sleeping, unless the god caring for you should send you another.

Socrates, (469 BC - 399 BC) Greek Philosopher
Plato 



 An unexamined life is not worth living.

Socrates, (469 BC - 399 BC) Greek Philosopher



 To find yourself, think for yourself.

Socrates, (469 BC - 399 BC) Greek Philosopher



 The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear.

Socrates, (469 BC - 399 BC) Greek Philosopher



 The only good is knowledge and the only evil is ignorance.

Socrates, (469 BC - 399 BC) Greek Philosopher



 By all means marry: If you get a good wife, you'll become happy; if you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher.

Socrates, (469 BC - 399 BC) Greek Philosopher



 Let him that would move the world, first move himself.

Socrates, (469 BC - 399 BC) Greek Philosopher
