Socrates of Athens, a Greek philosopher was born in c.470 BCE in Alopece and died in 399 BC. Socrates is known to be one of the most famous philosophers in history for his contribution to the development of ancient Greek philosophy. Socrates was found guilty for lacking respect for the God’s and corrupting the youth. He was sentenced to death and took authority of his own execution by consuming the poisonous plant hemlock. Here are some quotes I’ve found from Socrates.
“Know thyself”, to know who you are from deep within
“Sometimes you put walls up not to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to break them down”, the people around you who really care about you asking how you are and how you’re doing are the ones who can break those walls down.
