(About Education, Man)

The noblest of all studies is the study of what man is and of what life he should live.

More Quotes from Plato:

Justice is having and doing what is one's own.

Wealth is the parent of luxury and indolence, and poverty of meanness and viciousness, and both of discontent.

Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue.

The soul of man is immortal and imperishable.

In particular I may mention Sophocles the poet, who was once asked in my presence, ''How do you feel about love, Sophocles are you still capable of it'' to which he replied, ''Hush if you please to my great delight I have escaped from it, and feel as if I had escaped from a frantic and savage master.'' I thought then, as I do now, that he spoke wisely. For unquestionably old age brings us profound repose and freedom from this and other passions.

Mankind censure injustice fearing that they may be the victims of it, and not because they shrink from committing it.
