Upon every occasion we ought to have the following thoughts at our command:
Lead thou me on, O Zeus, and Destiny,
To that goal long ago to me assigned.
I’ll follow and not falter; if my will
Prove weak and craven, still I’ll follow on.
“Whoso has rightly with necessity complied,
We count him wise, and skilled in things divine.”
“Well, O Crito, if so it is pleasing to the gods, so let it be.”
“Anytus and Meletus can kill me, but they cannot hurt me.”
