: I remember a story about the Oracle of Delphi declaring that Socrates was the wisest man in the land, to which he responded something like, 'If that's true, it's only because I am aware that I know nothing.'
: Does anyone else recall this? Is there any truth to it? Do you remember his exact quote?
Oh yes! That is what he said. Look in the Dialogs of Plato for exact words. This is not too far from the words he used. In fact that was the basis of his accusation and execution.
