Socrates Quotes

Death may be the greatest of all human blessings.

The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear.

Not life, but good life, is to be chiefly valued.

I know that I am intelligent, because I know that I know nothing.

I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world.

Give me beauty in the inward soul; may the outward and the inward man be at one.
He is richest who is content with the least.

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

I know nothing except the fact of my ignorance.

My advice to you is get married if you find a good wife youll be happy if not, youll become a philosopher.

Regard your good name as the richest jewel you can possibly be possessed of – for credit is like fire when once you have kindled it you may easily preserve it, but if you once extinguish it, you will find it an arduous task to rekindle it again. The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear.

We are in fact convinced that if we are ever to have pure knowledge of anything, we must get rid of the body and contemplate things by themselves with the soul by itself. It seems, to judge from the argument, that the wisdom which we desire and upon which we profess to have set our hearts will be attainable only when we are dead and not in our lifetime.

The shortest and surest way to live with honour in the world, is to be in reality what we would appear to be; and if we observe, we shall find, that all human virtues increase and strengthen themselves by the practice of them.

Once made equal to man, woman becomes his superior.

The end of life is to be like God, and the soul following God will be like him.

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.

Be slow to fall into friendship but when thou art in, continue firm and constant.

The shortest and surest way to live with honor in the world is to be in reality what we would appear to be; all human virtues increase and strengthen themselves by the practice and experience of them.

– Socrates
