Socrates on Avoiding Wickedness…

09Sep06

it is not difficult to avoid death, gentlemen of the jury, it is much more difficult to avoid wickedness, for it runs faster than death. Slow and elderly as i am, i have been caught by the slower pursuer, whereas my accusers, being clever and sharp, have been caught by the quicker, wickedness. i leave you now, condemned to death by you, but they are condemned by truth to wickedness and injustice.
