Ravening against wisdom; what an offense to sound sense.

Postby Guide » Thu Oct 11, 2018 11:48 pm

It does seem, one who learns Socrates' bent will be utterly struck by its withering simplicity. Who would not be good at a thing, who had once got the knack of it? For instance, at swinging in golf, and striking the ball to the hole. What misery for the wretch without sound technique. Ergo, who can deny Socrates' holding, that is, that to not know is the only thing that makes us bad. What bliss to follow right learning, and to have learned what is teachable! Such is the holy zeal of wisdom.

PS

Gigantic morons, such as "Meno", are kindly requested not to interfere with or to hinder the activity of this thread.

Quality not quantity. Better to learn only a few things than learn a bunch of stuff you have no use for. Ie. American schools.
