I have read on the websites that Plato said, "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." But I have also seen that quotation attributed to other men. I did search here on the works of Plato using some of the words from that quotation and didn't find it. Does anyone know if this is, indeed, a quotation from Plato and where it may be found in his works?

Hi Joanie,

Your search did not bring results, because the saying is not Plato's (and it could not be). We had previously occasions in this forum to see how irresponsible some web sites are, attributing to Plato and other Greeks all sorts of stuff. Take care.
