Wisdom Quotes by Plutarch

The mind is not a vessel to be filled,but a fire to be kindled.

Do not speak of your happiness to one less fortunate than yourself.

A few vices are sufficient to darken many virtues.

Know how to listen,and you will profit even from
those who talk badly.

Of all the disorders in the soul,envy is the only
one no one confesses to.

Reason does not seek to eradicate passion,for that
would be neither expedient nor possible,but to plant
some limitation,order and ethical virtues.

Perseverance is more prevailing than violence;and many
things which cannot be overcome when they are together,
yield themselves up when taken little by little.
