Death may be the greatest of all human blessings. Socrates

Some suggestions for you :

When death comes to a man, the mortal part of him dies, but the immortal part retires at the approach of death and escapes unharmed and indestructible... [I]t is as certain as anything can be... that soul is immortal and imperishable, and that our souls will really exist in the next world.

Envy is the ulcer of the soul.

To fear death, gentlemen, is no other than to think oneself wise when one is not, to think one knows what one does not know. No one knows whether death may not be the greatest of all blessings for a man, yet men fear it as if they knew that it is the greatest of evils.

Once made equal to man, woman becomes his superior.

Be true to thine own self.

What I do not know, I do not think I know.

It is not living that matters, but living rightly.

Be slow to fall into friendship; but when thou art in, continue firm and constant.

I do believe that there are gods, and in a far higher sense than that in which any of my accusers believe in them.

The ancient Oracle said that I was the wisest of all the Greeks. It is because I alone, of all the Greeks, know that I know nothing.

No evil can happen to a good man, either in life or after death. He and his are not neglected by the gods.

The only thing i know is that i know nothing.
