Quote by Plato
For let me tell you, that the more the pleasures of the body fade away, the greater to me is the pleasure and charm of conversation
This quote suggests that as physical pleasures diminish over time, the speaker finds greater enjoyment and allure in engaging in conversation. It implies that meaningful interactions and intellectual exchanges become more valuable and fulfilling as one grows older or experiences a decline in bodily pleasures. The quote highlights the speaker's appreciation for the richness and pleasure derived from engaging in stimulating discussions and social interactions.
For nothing is fixed, forever and forever and forever, it is not fixed; the earth is always shifting, the light is always changing, the sea does not cease to grind down rock. Generations do not cease to be born, and we are responsible to them because we are the only witnesses they have. The sea rises, the light fails, lovers cling to each other, and children cling to us. The moment we cease to hold each other, the sea engulfs us and the light goes out.
