Socrates and the Frugal Life

Socrates believed that the wise person would instinctively lead a frugal life. He himself would not even
wear shoes; yet he constantly fell under the spell of the marketplace and would go there often to look at
all the wares on display.

When one of his friends asked why, Socrates said, “I love to go there and discover how many things I am
perfectly happy without.” (source unknown)
