Comments on: "Democritus Quotes: Strength and beauty are the blessings of youth; temperance, however, is the flower..."
Democritus was born in Abdera, Thrace. He was a Greek philosopher primarily remembered today for his formulation of an atomic theory of the universe. He is known for his influence on modern science more than any other pre-Socratic philosopher. He was also known as the “Laughing Philosopher", for his tendency to mock fellow citizens for their follies. What Democritus left has not survived in all of its physicality, but he has been written about by Aristotle, Theophrastus, Diogenes, along with a few others. Democritus was also a pioneer of mathematics and geometry in particular.
