Socrates believed in speaking the truth In his speeches his true character is revealed He is an individual who lived only to spread knowledge Socrates was humble knowing that he was no wiser than anyone In not recording his knowledge he was able to devote more time to thought He did not take money for his teachings the poor and rich could learn from him Socrates spent much time seeking out wise men and showing them to be fools He had perseverance continuing to urge people to think In his own words he was gadfly By answering questions with a question he urged people to find their own answers Socrates was a selfless man wanting only to bring goodness to the Athenians He was magnanimous forgiving his persecutors He assured them that he did not fear death Wherefore O judges be of a good cheer about death and know of a certainty that no evil can happen to a good man either in life or after death Plato Socrates was almost larger than life in his generosity good humor and love of life He was courageous in the way that he defended himself in plain words rather than use large words and a person to speak for him These characteristics define Socrates as almost larger than life
