“Eh, it’s good enough.—Mediocrites, Greek philosopher”

Socrates (470-399 BC) was a Greek philosopher from Athens who is credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy. There was no philosopher named “Mediocrates” or “Mediocretes” or “Mediocrites” (as in the words “mediocre” and “mediocrity”), but there is a popular meme. A joke entry for “Mediocrates” is in the Uncyclopedia.
       
“As the Greek philosopher Mediocrites once said, ‘Eh, it’s good enough’” was posted on Twitter by Daniel on March 18, 2013. “‘Eh, it’s good enough.’  -  Mediocrites, Greek philosopher” was posted on Twitter by Dave Hunter on April 5, 2017. “As the Greek philosopher Mediocrites once said, ‘Eh, it’s good enough’” was posted on Twitter by Marima on APril 27, 2018.
       
The saying went viral on February 11, 2021. “Ehh, Good Enough. -Mediocretes” was posted on Twitter by notrob on February 11, 2021. “‘Ehh, good enough.’ - Mediocrates” was posted on Twitter by PJ later on February 11, 2021.

It was the philosopher Mediocrates in 14 BC who coined the phrase ‘It’s good enough for government work.’

One of the lesser known Greek philosophers, he gave us the adage.
‘That’s good enough’ and ‘We can fix that later’.
