Plato (c. 427-347 BCE)

“If someone is self-disciplined and good-tempered, old age isn’t too much of a burden; otherwise, it’s not just a question of old age, Socrates – such a person will find life difficult when he’s young as well.”

  • From Republic (329d) by Plato, translated by Robin Waterfield (Oxford World’s Classics, 2008).
