Do not be angry with me if I tell you the truth
More quotes by Socrates
One who is injured ought not to return the injury, for on no account can it be right to do an injustice; and it is not right to return an injury, or to do evil to any man, however much we have suffered from him.
By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you’ll become happy; if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.
True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.
More quotes about Truth
Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.
It is a pleasure to stand upon the shore, and to see ships tost upon the sea: a pleasure to stand in the window of a castle, and to see a battle and the adventures thereof below: but no pleasure is comparable to standing upon the vantage ground of truth… and to see the errors, and wanderings, and mists, and tempests, in the vale below.
It is a puzzling thing. The truth knocks on the door and you say, ‘Go away, I’m looking for the truth.’ and so it goes away. Puzzling.
