“—El objetivo de cada hombre no debe ser llegar a un punto, sino avanzar desde donde está.”
Marcos Chicot, El asesinato de Pitágoras

“Perseo no replicó; estaba pensando que, al igual que otros filósofos, Sócrates y el joven Platón compartían la doctrina del gobierno de los más capaces. Muchos atenienses habían escuchado a Sócrates decir en público que la experiencia y la capacidad son los criterios por los que escogemos a un médico para que nos sane o a un general para ponerlo al mando del ejército, y que del mismo modo deberíamos elegir para el gobierno a los hombres más capacitados para gobernar. Esas”
Marcos Chicot, El asesinato de Sócrates

“«La sabiduría suele hallarse en el punto medio, y éste se encuentra donde por producir un beneficio no se ocasiona un perjuicio.»”
Marcos Chicot, La Hermandad
