Plato (c. 427-347 BCE)

“The children of our community must engage in more lawful amusements right from the start, because when pastimes become lawless and children follow suit, it is impossible for them to grow into law-abiding exemplary adults.”

  • From Republic (Bekker number 424e) by Plato, translated by Robin Waterfield (Oxford World’s Classics, 2008).
