Publisher Description

This book is an anthology of 146 quotes from Socrates and 52 facts about Socrates.



Socrates' father was Sophroniscus, a sculptor, and his mother Phaenarete, a midwife.

His wife, Xanthippe, bore for him three sons, Lamprocles, Sophroniscus and Menexenus.

Some sources say that Xanthippe, his wife, might have been as much as forty years younger than Socrates.

Socrates is known to have been fairly short and generally unattractive.

Socrates initially earned his living as a master stonecutter.

Shortly before his death, Socrates speaks his last words to Crito: "Crito, we owe a rooster to Asclepius. Please, don't forget to pay the debt."



“I am not an Athenian nor a Greek, but a citizen of the world.”

“My advice to you is getting married: if you find a good wife you'll be happy; if not, you'll become a philosopher.”

“Once made equal to man, woman becomes his superior.”

“One should eat to live; not live to eat.”

“To be is to do.”

“All I know is that I know nothing.”
