THE QUOTABLE PLATO

Edited by Lars Blackmore

Plato was a philosopher in Classical Greece and the founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world. He is widely considered the most pivotal figure in the development of philosophy, especially the Western tradition.

All that remains to be said about Plato, can be said by Plato…

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.”

– Plato

“Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.”

– Plato

“Wise men speak because they have something to say; fools because they have to say something.”

– Plato

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”

– Plato

“Only the dead have seen the end of war.”

– Plato

“If women are expected to do the same work as men, we must teach them the same things.”

– Plato, The Republic
