Opinions/Passion/Beauty


You are young, my son, and, as the years go by, time will change and even reverse many of your present opinions. Refrain, therefore, awhile from setting yourself up as a judge of the highest matters.
Plato

I know full well what ills I mean to do, but passion overpowers what counsel bids me.
Euripides (Medea)

Beauty addresses itself to sight, but there is also a beauty for hearing, as in music and poetry. But first of all, there is beauty in intelligence and virtue.
Plotinus
