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.
I know nothing except the fact of my ignorance.
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.
