- "You can't trust everything that ass Plato wrote," Sokrates said.
- Sokrates, of course, didn't ever see what he expected to see, he saw what was there and examined it.
- "Plato didn't have as much experience of humanity as he needed to write a book like the Republic," Sokrates said. "Perhaps nobody does."
- "There isn't an endpoint to excellence where you have it and you can stop. Being your best self means keeping on trying."
