More Quotes from Plato:


Well, my art of midwifery is in most respects like theirs but differs, in that I attend men and not women, and I look after their souls when they are in labor, and not after their bodies and the triumph of my art is in thoroughly examining whether the thought which the mind of the young man brings forth is a false idol or a noble and true birth.
Plato

Plato

Plato

Plato

Necessity, who is the mother of invention.
Plato
