The Quotidian, December 7, 2010 ~ Barrenness of a Busy Life

“Beware the barrenness of a busy life.” ~ Socrates (circa 469 BC to 399 BC)

Socrates was an Athenian Greek in classical antiquity. Much of what we know about him survives in the writings of his student Plato. According to Wikipedia, he is “credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy.”
