On all occasions these thoughts should be at hand:

Lead me, O God, and Thou, O Destiny, Be what it may the goal appointed me, Bravely I'll follow; nay, and if I would not, I'd prove a coward, yet must follow still!

Again: Who to Necessity do bow aright, Is learn'd in wisdom and the things of God.

Once more:-- Crito, if this be God's will, so let it be. As for me, Anytus and Meletus can indeed put me to death, but injure me, never!
