Pythagoras
Above all things reverence thy Self.
Pythagoras quotes
Happy is that City that hath a wise man to govern it.
Pythagoras
The King that followeth Truth, and ruleth according to Justice, shall reign quietly: but he that doth the contrary, seeketh another to reign for him.




Pythagoras quotes
Anger begins in folly, and ends in repentance.
Pythagoras
It is not proper either to have a blunt sword or to use freedom of speech ineffectually.
Neither is the sun to be taken from the world, nor freedom of speech from erudition.
Pythagoras quotes
It was through philosophy, he said, that he had come to be surprised at nothing.
Pythagoras
It is requisite to defend those who are unjustly accused of having acted injuriously, but to praise those who excel in a certain good.

I was Euphorbus at the siege of Troy.
Pythagoras
Wish not the thing, which thou mayest not obtain!
Pythagoras
Choose always the way that seems the best, however rough it may be; custom will soon render it easy and agreeable.
Pythagoras
Holding fast to these things, you will know the worlds of gods and mortals which permeates and governs everything. And you will know, as is right, nature similar in all respects, so that you will neither entertain unreasonable hopes nor be neglectful of anything.




Pythagoras quotes
Disbelieve nothing wonderful concerning the gods, nor concerning divine dogmas.
Pythagoras

Pythagoras quotes
Attempt nothing above thy strength!
Pythagoras
No one will deny that the soul of Pythagoras was sent to mankind from Apollo's domain, having either been one of his attendants, or more intimate associates, which may be inferred both from his birth, and his versatile wisdom.
Pythagoras quotes
Remind yourself that all men assert that wisdom is the greatest good, but that there are few who strenuously seek out that greatest good.
Pythagoras
A solitary man is a God, or a beast.
Pythagoras quotes
It was Pythagoras who first called heaven kosmos, because it is perfect, and "adorned" with infinite beauty and living beings.
Pythagoras
Patience cometh by the grace of the Soul.
Pythagoras
In anger we should refrain both from speech and action.
