3 valuable life lessons from Socrates

I Have selected 3 groups of quotes from Socrates that teach all of us 3 valuable life lessons, enjoy:

1 About wisdom

“I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.”

“To know, is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.”

“I know that I am intelligent, because I know that I know nothing.”

“True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.”

 

2 About wealth

“He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature.”

“Contentment is natural wealth, luxury is artificial poverty.”

3 About words

“False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil.”
