Socrates & his infinite wisdom and influence

“I shall never stop practicing philosophy and exhorting you and elucidating the truth for everyone that I meet. I shall go on saying…Are you not ashamed that you give your attention to acquiring as much money as possible, and similarly with reputation and honor and give no attention to truth and understanding and the perfection of your soul?…I shall do this to everyone I meet, young or old, foreigner or fellow citizen, but especially to you, my fellow citizens.”
Plato, Apology

Socrates once stated, “The unexamined life is not worth living.”

How true to his words was this cat? Those words are so poignant, and in fact, I can’t think of any better collection of words to live by. Question everything, including oneself and ones past. Go on, questioning questions and answers. Examine the media, politicians, idols, co-workers, family, religions, likes, dislikes, character, life, good, evil, etc…
It all adds up to a life worth living.

Peace
AM Son
