A Quote by Socrates on death, god, inferiority, joy, knowledge, and perception

You think that upon the score of fore-knowledge and divining I am infinitely inferior to the swans. When they perceive approaching death they sing more merrily than before, because of the joy they have in going to the God they serve.

Socrates (469 - 399 BC)
