From Socrates Apology

Best speeches of all time: Socrates on trial for 'corrupting youth' and 'impiety' "The hour of departure has arrived, and we go our ways — I to die, and you to live. Which is better God only knows."

Me and Socrates were buddies in another life- for real. I would needle him by pronouncing his name as it is spelled.  Kevin, thou art an idiot he would say rolling his eyes at me except it would come out sounding like, Χθονὸς μὲν ἐς τηλουρὸν ἥκομεν πέδον.

Yeah, he totally filched that line "It's too long we've been living these unexamined lives." from Henley...
