“It is not difficult to avoid death…it is much more difficult to avoid wickedness, for it runs faster than death.”
“Wealth does not bring about excellence, but excellence brings about wealth and all other public and private blessings for men.”
It is the greatest good for a man to discuss virtue every day…for the unexamined life is not worth living.
“I know what I do not know.”
