Quoting Socrates

Socrates is credited with writing, “Let him that would move the world, first move himself.”    Perhaps in other words, “Practice what you are going to preach.”   I wonder how many of the demagogues that we hear appealing to people’s prejudices and emotions are practicing what they preach.  I’ve known several who base their actions on what P.T. Barnum preached:  “A sucker is born every minute.”
