Menedemus, aka Menedemus of Eretria NULL

Greek Philosopher and Founder of the Eretrian School

"Wisdom seldom consorts with extravagance."

"The young boys that went to Athens, the first year, were wise men; the second year, philosophers, lovers of wisdom; the third year, mere orators; and the fourth but plebeians, and understood nothing but their own ignorance."
