As I love quotes and Socrates, I am sharing four quotes which inspire and guide me:

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”

“I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think.”

“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”

“I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world.”
