Independent in All Things, Neutral in Nothing

The Body, Riches and Virtue from Plato’s Apology of Socrates

“I think no greater good has ever befallen you in the city than my zeal for the service of the god. For I go about doing nothing else than persuading you to take no care either of the body or for riches, prior so much as for the soul, how that it may be made most perfect, telling you that virtue does not spring from riches, but riches and all other human blessings, both private and public, from virtue.”
— Socrates, The Apology by Plato
