The wisdom of Socrates transcends centuries, ringing true today just as it did years ago. Take what you wish from these dialogues. I found great pleasure in reading this book and expanding upon some of his more relevant sayings. For more Socrates, I highly recommend “The Memorable Thoughts of Socrates.” Hope you enjoyed.   Socrates did, ultimately, accept the punishment of death. There is no reason to fear what we do not know, he argued. A point that might have comforted him as he marched into the great unknown beyond this life. Perhaps, reflecting on the years he had already lived, Socrates welcomed a memorable end.
