Peering out of the Water (Socrates)

Socrates’ last days and reflections on the immortality of the soul.

“Let a man be of good cheer about his soul, who having cast away the pleasures and ornaments of the body as alien to him … has sought after the pleasures of knowledge; and has arrayed the soul, not in some foreign attire, but in her own proper jewels, temperance, and justice, and courage, and nobility, and truth—in these adorned she is ready to go on her journey.”
Socrates (from Plato’s Dialogue the Phaedo)
