Light instead of darkness

Socrates, Classical Greece

469 BC - 399 BC

Philosopher

(Submitted by Cleo Georgiou, Greece)

In order that the mind should see light instead of darkness, so the entire soul must be turned away from this changing world, until its eye can learn to contemplate reality and that supreme splendor which we have called the good. Hence there may well be an art whose aim would be to effect this very thing.
