SOCRATES IN PRISON

Among other things, Socrates said: “Having the fewest wants, I am closest to the gods.” In prison, I like to think of this as the idea that external things aren’t as important as what’s inside. If you have yourself, your mind, you have everything you need. And even as an atheist, I admire this sentiment. I just replace “the gods” with “greatness” or “understanding.”
