Socrates (via Plato et al.)

***************

Luxury is the
natural contentment with
artificial things

***************

I am in friendly
harmony with evil: My
mother is for sale

***************

There is only one
good, but it is not in the
field of my knowledge

***************

Having the fewest
wants, I am nearest to the
poverty of God

***************

Old age is wretched;
I’ve had as much as a man
can bear and then some

***************

Beauty infects the
soul with the desire for gold
and wise ignorance

***************

Justice and virtue
are false words; follow not where
they aspire to lead
