QUOTATIONS FROM SOCRATES  “The unexamined life is not worth living”  “The wisest of you is the one who

has realised, like Socrates, that in respect of wisdom, he is really worthless”  “I am fairly certain that this plain speaking of mine is the cause of my unpopularity”  (About Hector) “ Do you suppose that he gave a thought to death and danger”?  “Are you (Athenians) not ashamed that you give all your attention to making as much money as possible, and reputation and honour, and give no thought to truth and understanding and the goodness of your soul”?  “If you put me to death you will not easily find someone to take my place”.  “The difficulty is not so much to escape death; the real difficulty is to escape from doing wrong, which is far quicker”.  “Now it is time to go, I to die and you to live; but which of us has the happier prospect is unknown to anyone but God”.  “The really important thing is not to live, but to live well”.  “Crito, don’t forget to offer a cock to Asclepius”
