Bad men live that they may eat and drink, whereas good men eat and drink that they may live.–Socrates, c 430 BC
Socrates was a classical Greek Athenian philosopher unlike any other, since he never wrote anything. He is credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy.
He believed in teaching people how they ought to live and how to think for themselves, and is therefore compared by many to Jesus and Buddha, even though he had no dogma as such. He was convicted and executed for irreverence toward the Greek gods.
