Plato: Goodness Has Its Own Protection

Daily Dabble in the Classics, Plato

From the trial of Socrates found in The Apology, Socrates fearlessly stood firm in defense of his beliefs, and though it would be unto the death that he would so stand remarked:

No evil can happen to a good man, neither in life nor after death.

Source: Plato quoting Socrates in “The Apology” sec. 41.
