I have been reading a book about Ancient Greek Classical Culture.

Now is there any way that could not inspire me to dig for some quotes?

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. "

"Men acquire a particular quality by constantly acting a particular way... you become just by performing just actions, temperate by performing temperate actions, brave by performing brave actions."

"It is not always the same thing to be a good man and a good citizen."

"A state is not a mere society, having a common place, established for the prevention of mutual crime and for the sake of exchange...Political society exists for the sake of noble actions, and not of mere companionship."
