Forty-Three

Book 6, 43

“43. Does the sun take upon himself to discharge the functions of the rain? or Asclepitis of the Fruit-bearer? And what of each particular star? Do they not differ in glory yet co-operate to one end?”

“Μήτι ὁ ἥλιος τὰ τοῦ ὑετοῦ ἀξιοῖ ποιεῖν; μήτι ὁ Ἀσκληπιὸς τὰ τῆς Καρποφόρου; τί δὲ τῶν ἄστρων ἕκαστον; οὐχὶ διάφορα μέν, συνεργὰ δὲ πρὸς ταὐτόν;”

via Book 6.

  • “43. Does the sun try to do the rain’s work? Or Asclepius Demeter’s? And what about each of the stars—different yet working in common?”
