In order to increase their possessions they kick and butt with horns and hoofs of steel and kill each other, insatiable as they are.

    Never discourage anyone who continually makes progress, no matter how slow.

    There are three classes of men; lovers of wisdom, lovers of honor, and lovers of gains.

    Fun fact- Plato was essentially known as the Hulk Hogan of his time. His name Plato is actually a nickname from his wrestling coach after the word platon, meaning “broad”.

    Probably. "Plato" is actually a nickname, meaning "broad" - this dude was ripped. He was also a wrestler. It's exactly like if Dwayne Johnson started publishing philosophical texts under the name "The Rock," and people thousands of years hence remembered him only by that name.
