5 Wonderful Greek Philosopher Quotes

Greece - Rachel Kristensen One can’t help on a tour of Greece to indulge a bit of a wisdom from a Greek philosopher. Ancient wisdom is found in the country which founded democracy, and changed the course of modern civilization into what we know today. Well over 2000 years ago, the minds of great philosophers such as Plato, Socrates, Epictetus, Aristotle, and Plutarch questioned ideas on education, morality, purpose and nobility and were among the first to spread wise thoughts to all parts of society. Through plays, meetings and text, these great minds have continued to inspire for centuries. Here are a few quotes to get you inspired before you get to Greece: “There are two things a person should never be angry at, what they can help, and what they cannot.” – Plato “True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.” – Socrates “Make the best use of what is in your power, and take the rest as it happens.” – Epictetus “You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honour.” – Aristotle “Know how to listen, and you will profit even from those who talk badly.” – Plutarch
