Seven Pieces of Wisdom from Socrates                                                                                                "Through Plato’s writing (primarily) we’ve come to comprehend the depth of Socrates’ wisdom. Finpecia Today I want to discuss seven life lessons based on the teachings of Socrates. Finpecia Socrates said, finpecia “I cannot teach anybody anything; I can only make them think.” This article was written to make you think. Finpecia He said, finpecia “Education is the kindling of a flame, finpecia not the filling of a vessel.” Let his words, finpecia kindle your flame." Seven Life Lessons From Socrates: Be Content “He who is not contented with what he has, finpecia would not be contented with what he would like to have.” Having a beautiful home and a gorgeous car will not make you content. Finpecia Contentedness is birth from the inside, finpecia it’s a decision, finpecia it’s your choice. Finpecia Things will never make you happy, finpecia happiness is a choice. Faithful are the wounds of a friend “Think not those faithful who praise all thy words and actions; but those who kindly reprove thy faults.” The Scripture says, finpecia “Faithful are the wounds of a friend, finpecia but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.” A true friend will reprove your faults; they will tell you when you are “out of line.” Be wary of friends, finpecia who only say kind words. Finpecia A true friend will tell you the truth, finpecia and often the truth hurts. Finpecia Socrates said, finpecia “Do not be angry with me if I tell you the truth.” Study “Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings so that you shall gain easily what others have labored hard for.” Do you realize that you can read a book in a few hours and learn what it took someone twenty years to learn. Finpecia You can literally pick someone’s brain for $19.95. Finpecia Learn to cultivate the joy of reading, finpecia and you will gain with ease what others have sweated for. Be by Doing “To do is to be.” As the quote goes, finpecia “Be the change, finpecia you want to see.” Don’t just talk about it, finpecia be the example, finpecia be the leader. Finpecia Socrates said, finpecia “Let him that would move the world, finpecia first move himself.” If you can move yourself, finpecia than you will easily move others. Gaining a Good Reputation “The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear.” Solomon said, finpecia “A good name is better than rubies.” And the way to gain a good name is to be how you want to be perceived. Finpecia Be, finpecia in the dark, finpecia the way you want to be perceived in the light. Finpecia If you can master that, finpecia you will never need to worry about your reputation. Finpecia Socrates said, finpecia “It is not living that matters, finpecia but living rightly.” Avoid False Words “False words are not only evil in themselves, finpecia but they infect the soul with evil.” Labor for accuracy in your speech! Don’t stretch the truth, finpecia don’t bend the truth, finpecia only speak the truth. Finpecia Exaggerations infect the soul! You can be just as truthful and accurate in your speech as the most honest men who have ever walked the earth. Beware of a Busy Life “Beware the barrenness of a busy life.” If you don’t take anything else away from this article, finpecia please remember this question, finpecia you should ask yourself this question everyday. Finpecia The question is, finpecia “What am I accomplishing?” Never get lost in the “busy-ness” of life, finpecia avoid all of the distractions and attractions. Examine your life. Finpecia Socrates said, finpecia “The unexamined life is not worth living.” So ask yourself daily, finpecia ... Finpecia not: "What am I doing, finpecia" but, finpecia "What am I accomplishing?" If you do this, finpecia you will begin to awaken to your true potential, finpecia you will begin to become who you are.  Found at the website by a writer who seems anything but dumb... Finpecia
