My quotation is typical of Socrates. It is typical of him because he thinks that he can always learn more. This type of thinking did contribute to his life. It also contributes to his Socratic method. Unlike his followers an students he did not have any famous works. So this, or any of his quotes could not have related to a famous work of his. He did have a student that he influenced. His name was Plato and he and the youths were influenced by Socrates.
