THEODORUSAthens, 340 - approx. 250 B.C.
Copy and paste the following code:
Athenian from the municipality of Erchia. Father of the orator Isocrates, builder of courtyards. Aristophanes and Stratis ironically mention Theodore's profession to belittle Isocrates, while Dionysius of Halicarnassus mentions that he was an average citizen who had "made courts". In any case, however, Theodore was quite well-to-do, so he undertook sponsorships and educated his children in an excellent way. But later, around 413 BC, he lost his fortune and almost at the same time he died. In addition to Isocrates, he had 3 more sons: Theodore, Telesippos, and Dimnestos.
- HE WHO EMPLOYS LOVE FOR PRACTICAL REASONS DOES NOT ERR, AS WELL AS HE WHO EMPLOYS BEAUTY FOR PRACTICAL REASONS ALSO DOES NOT ERR.
- JOY COMES FROM WISDOM AND SORROW FROM LACK OF WISDOM
- WISDOM AND JUSTICE ARE GOODS
- FRIENDSHIP IS REJECTED BECAUSE IT CHARACTERIZES NEITHER THE IGNORANT NOR THE WISE. FOR THE FIRST, AS SOON AS THE NEED IS LOST, FRIENDSHIP IS LOST TOO, AS FOR THE WISE BECAUSE THEY ARE SELF-SUFFICIENT THEY DON'T NEED FRIENDS
- THE IMPORTANT ONES SHOULD NOT SACRIFICE FOR THE COUNTRY, BECAUSE THERE IS NO REASON TO DESTROY WISDOM TO BENEFIT THE IGNORANT
- HOMELAND IS THE WHOLE WORLD
- THEFT, ADULTERY, AND SACRILEGE MAY BE PERMISSIBLE ACCORDING TO THE CIRCUMSTANCES, BECAUSE NONE OF THEM ARE INHERENTLY BAD, IF THE PREJUDICE AGAINST THEM IS REMOVED, BUT THEY ARE SIMPLY OPTIONS TO CONTROL THE IGNORANTS
- JOY IS THE ULTIMATE GOOD AND SORROW IS THE ULTIMATE EVIL
