Quotes by Robin Waterfield  (?)

“Reading Plato should be easy; understanding Plato can be difficult.”
Robin Waterfield, Republic

“If I am in love, many things about the world, not just the immediate object of my love, seem lovable. To say 'I love X' is somehow really to say 'X inspires love in me', and that love then attaches itself to objects other than X as well. The expansiveness of love is a natural means of ascent between levels.”
Robin Waterfield

“The man who has never desired or experienced anything base and bad is not a man of restraint, because he has never had to master anything to compose himself.”
Robin Waterfield, The First Philosophers: The Presocratics and Sophists
