However he is regarded as a classical Greek philosopher and as being the first moral philosopher. In fact he’s been credited as being one of the founders of Western philosophy.

So it’s hard to know whether any of the quotes credited to him were actually spoken by him. Nevertheless the philosophy credited to him is worthy of our consideration and further reflection. So here are 15 Quotes by Socrates that will make you think:-
