Jesus was one of those really interesting characters in history; he never wrote anything himself. Socrates was another. The only thing we know about Socrates is what his student Plato reported. The only words we have of Jesus are those written many years later. The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John contain many quotes of this greatest of leaders.
I think he probably said more, and the words have been lost to antiquity. Perhaps he has since influenced others to write. If that is possible then I submit the following quote as a possibility:
“To thine own self be true. And it shall follow as the night, the day. Thou canst not then be false to any man.” Shakespeare —- Hamlet, Polonius’ Advice to His Son.
The embodiment of Jesus continues to speak to us today – but we have to listen.
