Hello! As I have already mentioned to my previous article...

...I'm proud to be greek, and today I'm here to show you a few words told by wise personalities of Ancient Greece. Enjoy!

aesthetic, alternative, and art image
Socrates, Philosopher of the 5th century BC.
"One thing I know, that I know nothing. That's the source of my wisdom."

That's a really famous one, worldwide.

"By all means, get married: if you find a good wife, you'll be happy; if not, you'll become a philosopher."

Juicy fact: Socrates was married to Xanthippe, a violent woman that used to tell him that philosophy is not supposed to be a job and discouraged him a lot. His sense of humor though...

change, constant, and heraclitus image
Philosopher of the 4th century BC.

Aristotle, Philosopher/Scientist of the 4th century BC and said to be the first Psychologist.
"Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies."

art, statue, and paris image
Epicurus, Philosopher of the 4th century BC as well.
"Death does not concern us, because as long as we exist, death is not here. And when it comes, we no longer exist."

In other words: Y.O.L.O.

philosophy, plato, and know thyself image
Plato, Philosopher of the 5th century BC.
"Man: a being in search of meaning."

Pretty accurate definition.

And a couple more quotes...

"Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises."
- Demosthenes, Orator of the 4th century BC.
"Wait for the wisest of all counselors: time."
- Pericles, Statesman of the 5th century BC.

[to Greeks, the 5th century is also called "The Golden Century of Pericles" ]

"I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion."
- Alexander The Great, Conqueror of the 4th century BC.

[his teacher was Aristotle ]

Well, that's all for now! Hope you'll keep them in mind!
