Socrates is charged with corrupting the youth of the city, and with rejecting the gods of Athens and introducing new divinities.

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.
To gain a good reputation, endeavor to be what you desire to appear.
Children today are tyrants. They contradict their parents, gobble their food, and tyrannize their teachers.
Be of good cheer about death, and know this of a truth, that no evil can happen to a good man, either in life or after death.
