Socrates quotes

Socrates

Socrates
The unexamined life is not worth living.

Socrates

And therefore I bid farewell to all this the common opinion is enough for me. For, as I was saying, I want to know not about this, but about myself: am I a monster more complicated and swollen with passion than the serpent Typho, or a creature of a gentler and simpler sort, to whom Nature has given a diviner and lowlier destiny?

Socrates
Only the extremely ignorant or the extremely intelligent can resist change.

Socrates
Woman once made equal to man becomes his superior

Socrates
The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be.

Socrates
Bad men live that they may eat and drink, whereas good men eat and drink that they may live.

Socrates
Thou shouldst eat to live not live to eat.
