The Sunday Quote

Those whose who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber.


Note: Plato (424BC-347BC) was a Clasical Greek philosoper. Together with his teacher, Socrates, and his student, Aristotle, Plato helped to lay the philosophical foundations of what is now refered to a Western Culture. Plato was also a mathematician, writer of philosophical dialogues, and founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the western world.Plato's brilliance as a writer and thinker can be witnessed by reading his Socratic dialogues. The dialogues have since Plato's time been used to teach a range of subjects, mostly including philosophy, logic, rhetoric, mathematics, and other subjects about which he wrote.
