WHAT SOCRATES (Father of Greek Philosophy) ASKED BEFORE HE DIE?

Socrates was a classical Greek philosopher credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy, and as being the first moral philosopher, of the Western ethical tradition of thought. Wikipedia 

He is also called “The Father of Greek Philosophy”.

On the last day of his life, knowing very well he has to consume poison the next morning, Socrates asked for a book to read.

The prisoner asked Socrates, anyhow you are going to die tomorrow, why do you want to read a book TODAY?

Socrates replied as “So That I Can Die A Little More Intelligent.”

Every single day Socrates read and write a lot and update his knowledge. He was committed to a lifelong learning towards his life and even today his words makes more meaningful and resonates with today’s world, that’s the reason we call him as “the father of Greek philosophy”.

Be a lifelong learner. Commit yourself to self-improvement, that’s the only way to grow high and reach next level in life and career.

My Favorite Socrates Quotes to Live by:

  • I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.
  • To find yourself, think for yourself.   
  • An unexamined life is not worth living. 
  • True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing. 
  • 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.
