“Socrates gave a lifetime to the outpouring of his substance in the shape of the greatest benefits bestowed on all who cared to receive them. In other words, he made those who lived in his society better men and sent them on their way rejoicing.”
(Xenophon on the Wisdom of Socrates)

I. 9-OS / Homer
“In youth and beauty, wisdom is but rare!”
“Yet, taught by time, my heart has learned to glow for other’s good, and melt at other’s woe.“
“And what he greatly thought, he nobly dared.”
II. 9-OS / Hesiod [750 – ?]
“Do not let any sweet-talking woman beguile your good sense with the fascination of her shape. It’s your barn she’s after.”
“A bad neighbor is as great a calamity as a good one is a great advantage.”
“It will not always be summer; build barns.”
III. 9-OS / Sicilian Wars [480-306 BC]
Visit the link below to learn even more about the Historical Context of Western Civilization:
IV. 9-OS / Herodotus [484 – 425 BC]
“Adversity has the effect of drawing out strength and qualities of a man that would have laid dormant in its absence.”
“Force has no place where there is need of skill.”
“Of all possessions a friend is the most precious one.”
V. 9-OS / Thucydides [460-400 BC]
“The secret to happiness is freedom… And the secret to freedom is courage.”
“The strong did what they could, the weak suffered what they must.”
“We secure our friends not by accepting favors but by doing them.”
VI. 9-OS / Xenophon [430-354 BC]
“The true test of a leader is whether his followers will adhere to his cause from their own volition, enduring the most arduous hardships without being forced to do so, and remaining steadfast in the moments of greatest peril.”
“In my experience, men who respond to good fortune with modesty and kindness are harder to find than those who face adversity with courage. For in the very nature of things, success tends to create pride and blindness in the hearts of men, while suffering teaches them to be patient and strong.”
“In heaven’s name, let us not wait for other people to come to us and call upon us to do great deeds. Let us instead be the first to summon the rest to a path of honor.”
VII. 9-OS / Plato [424 – 348 BC]
“For a man to conquer himself is the first and noblest of all victories.”
“A good decision is based upon knowledge, not on numbers.”
“The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.”
“Knowledge becomes evil if the aim be not virtuous.”
“Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around them.”
“Justice in the life and conduct of the State is possible only as first it resides in the hearts and souls of the citizens.”
“This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector.”
“At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet.”
“There are three classes of men; lovers of wisdom, lovers of honor, and lovers of gain.”
“All men are by nature equal, made all of the same earth by one Workman; and however we deceive ourselves, as dear unto God is the poor peasant as the mighty prince.”
VIII. 9-OS / Aristotle [384-322]
“At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice he is the worst.”
“I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self.”
“Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own.”
“Youth is easily deceived because it is quick to hope.”
“Moral excellence comes about as a result of habit. We become just by doing just acts, temperate by doing temperate acts, brave by doing brave acts.”
“You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.”
“Wishing to be friends is quick work, but friendship is a slow ripening fruit.”
“A great city is not to be confused with a populous one.”
“The law is reason, free from passion.”
“The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal.”
IX. 9-OS / Marcus Porcius Cato [234-149]
“The worst ruler is one who cannot rule himself.”
“Patience is the greatest of all virtues.”
“He is nearest to the gods who knows how to be silent.”
X. 9-OS / Polybius [200 – 118 BC]
“The test of true virtue in a man surely resides in his capacity to bear with spirit and with dignity the most complete transformations of fortune,”
“Similarly that is no true democracy in which the whole crowd of citizens is free to do whatever they wish or purpose, but when, in a community where it is traditional and customary to reverence the gods, to honor our parents, to respect our elders, and to obey the laws, the will of the greater number prevails, this is to be called a democracy.”
“Sensible policy does not regard only the immediate necessities of the hour, but must ever look still more keenly to the future.”
XI. 9-OS / Appian of Alexandrie [95-165 CE]
XII. 9-OS / Marcus Tullius Cicero [106 – 43 BC]
“Never was a government that was not composed of liars, malefactors and thieves.”
“The budget should be balanced, the treasury refilled, public debt reduced, the arrogance of officialdom tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands curtailed, lest Rome become bankrupt.”
“A bureaucrat is the most despicable of men, though he is needed as vultures are needed, but one hardly admires vultures whom bureaucrats so strangely resemble. I have yet to meet a bureaucrat who was not petty, dull, almost witless, crafty or stupid, an oppressor or a thief, a holder of little authority in which he delights, as a boy delights in possessing a vicious dog. Who can trust such creatures?”
“Poor is the nation that has no heroes, but poorer still is the nation that having heroes, fails to remember and honor them.”
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.”
Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
- Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others.
- Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected.
- Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it.
- Refusing to set aside trivial preferences.
- Neglecting development and refinement of the mind.
- Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.
“The good of the people is the greatest law.”
“Never go to excess, but let moderation be your guide.”
“The wise are instructed by reason, average minds by experience, the stupid by necessity and the brute by instinct.”
“It is not by muscle, speed, or physical dexterity that great things are achieved, but by reflection, force of character, and judgment.”
XIII. 9-OS / Publius Vergilius Maro (Virgil) [70 – 18 BC]
“Every man makes a god of his own desire.”
“Easy is the descent to hell; all night long, all day, the doors of dark Hades stand open; but to retrace the path; to come out again to the sweet air of Heaven – there is the task, there is the burden.”
“Ah, merciless Love, is there any length to which you cannot force the human heart to go?”
XIV. 9-OS / Horace [65 – 8 BC]
“Undeservedly you will atone for the sins of your fathers.”
“Mix a little foolishness with your serious plans. It is lovely to be silly at the right moment.”
“Now is the time to drink!”
XV. 9-OS / Titus Livius (Livy) [59BC – 17AD]
“This above all makes history useful and desirable; it unfolds before our eyes a glorious record of exemplary actions.”
“In grave difficulties, and with little hope, the boldest measures are the safest”
“Friends should be judged by their acts, not their words.”
XVI. 9-OS / Publius Ovidius Naso (Ovid) [43 BC – 18 AD]
“Habits change into character.”
“If you want to be loved, be lovable.”
“Happy are those who dare courageously to defend what they love.”
XVII. 9-OS / Plutarch [46-119 CE]
“An imbalance between rich and poor is the oldest and most fatal ailment of all republics.”
“Courage consists not in hazarding without fear; but being resolutely minded in a just cause.”
“I write this… out of pity to the weakness of human nature.”
XVIII. 9-OS / Cassius Dio [155-235 CE]
“The best ruler, the one who is of any real value, should not only perform all the duties which fall to his lot, but should provide for the rest of his subjects, so that they can develop their virtues to the full.”
“Let no man be the object of your jealousy, and when you compete with one another let it not be for the personal advantage of this man or that, but to ensure the safety and prosperity of the city.”
“Immortality is a state which it is not in our power to possess, but by living nobly and dying nobly we do in a certain measure achieve this condition.”
XIX. 9-OS / Edward Gibbon [1737-1794 CE]
“In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all — security, comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again…”
“In the various states of society, armies are recruited from very different motives. Barbarians are urged by the love of war; the citizens of a free republic may be prompted by a principle of duty; the subjects, or at least the nobles, of a monarchy, are animated by a sentiment of honor; but the timid and luxurious inhabitants of a declining empire must be allured into the service by the hopes of profit, or compelled by the dread of punishment.”
“The various modes of worship which prevailed in the Roman world were all considered by the people as equally true; by the philosopher as equally false; and by the magistrate as equally useful.”
“The principles of a free constitution are irrecoverably lost, when the legislative power is nominated by the executive.”
The five telltale signs of Rome’s decaying culture (and any culture for that matter):
1) Concern with displaying affluence instead of building wealth.
2) Obsession with sex and perversions of sex.
3) Widening disparity between very rich and very poor.
4) Increased demand to live off the state.
5) Art becomes irreverent and sensationalistic — more geared towards pleasure and lust — instead of being Profound, Nurtering and Original.
XX. 9-OS / Theodor Mommsen [1817-1903 CE]
“The power which the Hellenes and even the Italians possessed, of civilizing and assimilating to themselves the nations susceptible of culture with whom they came into contact, was wholly wanting in the Phoenicians.”
“Just because the shrewdest lie feels itself inwardly annihilated before the simple truth, and because all the dignity and glory of human nature ultimately depend not on shrewdness but on honesty.“
“Hypocrisy is the homage that vice pays to virtue.”
