Plato (427-347 BCE)

“The most astonishing thing of all, however, is what gets said about the gods and goodness–that the gods often assign misfortune and a terrible life to good people, and the opposite to the other type of person.”

  • From Republic (Bekker number 364b) by Plato, translated by Robin Waterfield (Oxford World’s Classics, 2008).
