Famous quotes containing the words strong and/or medicine:
“Conscience is but a word that cowards use,
Devised at first to keep the strong in awe.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“For this invention of yours will produce forgetfulness in the minds of those who learn it, by causing them to neglect their memory, inasmuch as, from their confidence in writing, they will recollect by the external aid of foreign symbols, and not by the internal use of their own faculties. Your discovery, therefore, is a medicine not for memory, but for recollection,for recalling to, not for keeping in mind.”
—Plato (c. 427347 B.C.)
