My favourite quotes from Plato (427 BC - 347 BC)

Sunday, June 29, 2008

Never discourage anyone.....who continually makes progress, no matter how slow - Plato

The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men - Plato

Ignorance, the root and stem of every evil - Plato

Apply yourself both now and in the next life. Without effort, you cannot be prosperous. Though the land be good, You cannot have an abundant crop without cultivation - Plato

The most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery rise out of the most extreme liberty - Plato

I shall assume that your silence gives consent. - Plato

If a man neglects education, he walks lame to the end of his life - Plato

Nothing can be more absurd than the practice that prevails in a country of men and women not following the same pursuits with all their strengths and with one mind, for thus,the state instead of being whole is reduced to half - Plato

People are like dirt. They can either nourish you and help you grow as a person or they can stunt your growth and make you wilt and die - Plato

The curse of me and my nation is that we always think things can be bettered by immediate action of some sort, any sort rather than no sort. - Plato
