Happiness is unrepented pleasure.
Socrates (469 - 399 BC)
Contributed by: Zaady
Having the fewest wants, I am nearest to the gods.
My belief is that to have no wants is divine.
Socrates is charged with corrupting the youth of the city, and with rejecting the gods of Athens and introducing new divinities.
Source: Plato, Apologia, 24b 9
He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature.
Beauty is a short-lived tyranny.
Only the extremely ignorant or the extremely intelligent can resist change.
I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world.
He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have.
Contentment is natural wealth, luxury is artificial poverty.
