It is the greatest good for a man to discuss virtue every day…for the unexamined life is not worth living.
“It is best and easiest not to discredit others but to prepare oneself to be as good as possible.”
“It is not difficult to avoid death…it is much more difficult to avoid wickedness, for it runs faster than death.”
“I know what I do not know.”
