Let's talk SOCRATES!!!

I am coming to so many  parties LATE!!!! I AM SO HAPPY THAT I GET TO INVITE MYSELF!!!!  I freaking LOVE studying the GREAT MINDS and HEARTS of those who have gone on before. I fuss to myself when I miss my mom.  I feel gypped that I don't have that "love me no matter what" female life ADVOCATE to hold my hand. I step out of that ridiculous thinking when crazy synchronicity pours out around me. I will tell you more about that in another post.   As I battle the insecurity of wanting to be CHOSEN  of their accord by others, the Universe perfectly scoops me up. WHO..I mean WHO gets CHOSEN by SOCRATES???? ALL OF included!!! Snuggle up to his HEART!!!  I am his Lover. Maybe, just maybe, I was his wife that made him the Philosopher. The GODS bless us both. 
1) “The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”
2) “The unexamined life is not worth living.”
3) “There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.”
4) “I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think”
5) “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”
6) “Strong minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, weak minds discuss people.”
7) “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.”
8) “He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have.”
9) “If you don’t get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don’t want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can’t hold on to it forever. Your mind is your predicament. It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of the obligations of life and death. But change is law and no amount of pretending will alter that reality.”
10) “Sometimes you put walls up not to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to break them down.”
11) “Wonder is the beginning of wisdom.”
12) “To find yourself, think for yourself.”
13) “Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.”
14) “Know thyself.”
15) “Let him who would move the world first move himself.”
16) “The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.”
17) “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”
18) “I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world.”
19) “Prefer knowledge to wealth, for the one is transitory, the other perpetual.”
20) “understanding a question is half an answer”
21) “True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us”
22) “He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature.”
23) “To be is to do”
24) “The mind is everything; what you think you become”
He gets new reign of the shower wall of quotes...happening now. But to READ good as Hagendas  coffee ice cream in bed.
