Quote by Solon
Rich people without wisdom and learning are but sheep with golden fleeces.
This quote suggests that wealth alone is insufficient to truly define a person's value or character. It emphasizes the importance of wisdom and knowledge in evaluating individuals. Comparing rich people without wisdom and learning to sheep with golden fleeces implies that their external wealth might be admirable superficially, but lacks substance and purpose. The quote highlights the need for a well-rounded education and the cultivation of wisdom as essential traits that complement material success.
