Socrates Says:

"The unexamined life is not worth living. "

"Let him that would move the world first move himself."

"He is a man of courage who does not run away, but remains at his post and fights against the enemy."

"Be as you wish to seem."

"As for me, all I know is that I know nothing."

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

"By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you'll be happy. If you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher."
