Faith of Socrates
Because he understood the superiority and immortality
of good, Socrates feared not the hemlock poison.
Even the faith of his philosophy spurned physical
timidity. Having sought man's spiritual
state, he recognized the immortality of man. The ignorance
and malice of the age would have killed the venerable
philosopher because of his faith in Soul and his indifference
to the body.
