Democritus (460 BC- 370 BC) quotes


  • By desiring little, a poor man makes himself rich.
  • Do not trust all men, but trust men of worth; the former course is silly, the latter a mark of prudence.
  • Good means not merely not to do wrong, but rather not to desire to do wrong.
  • Happiness resides not in possessions, and not in gold, happiness dwells in the soul.
  • Hope of ill gain is the beginning of loss.
  • If thou suffer injustice, console thyself; the true unhappiness is in doing it.
  • It is better to destroy one's own errors than those of others.
  • It is greed to do all the talking but not to want to listen at all.
  • Our sins are more easily remembered than our good deeds.
