Plato – His Life and Quotes

Do you know these are some of thinkers who had a one single tool to crack mysterious things of universe and tactics of nature, It’s Curiosity and questioning Philosophy behind things which occur in our daily life. Now we are living in modern and civilized environment here everything is predetermined and invented so far. But Plato’s age was an just beginning of human evolution. An modern cult is much different than their lifestyle.

One of the greatest philosophers to have ever lived on Earth was Plato. Even Plato’s mother, Perictione, is believed to be a descendant of an aristocrat named Solon. According to historians, Solon was a Greek statesman from 6th century BCE.

Greek philosopher and thinker Plato founded the Academy and is the author of philosophical works. Very less is gained about his life. Our today’s history evaluations tell Plato’s birth was around 428 B.C.E., but more modern scholars, outlining later events in his life, believe he was born between 424 and 423 B.C.E.

His works have heavily influenced the western culture. All his writings engrossed on a wide range of subjects counting philosophy of language, epistemology, cosmology, theology, deliberations on aesthetics, beauty, justice, equality and yes, political philosophy. Whatever information we have today about this great philosopher comes from historians who somehow achieved to come up with a detailed building of his live from his works. The problem was that of the lack of primary and dependable sources to provide an account of Plato’s life. We do not claim any authenticity about whatever we write here about Plato.

Plato’s impact on philosophy and the nature of humans has had a lasting influence far beyond his motherland of Greece. His work covered a broad spectrum of interests and ideas: mathematics, science and nature, morals and political theory. Socrates (yet another great philosopher) was his teacher and he was in turn, teacher of another great philosopher named Aristotle.

I personally like this quotes of plato…

“Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.” ― Plato

Only the dead have seen the end of war.
Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools, because they have to say something.
The measure of a man is what he does with power.
Your silence gives consent.
We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.
You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.
At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet.
One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.
