Heraclitus (Diog.[enes])
They say that when asked why he was silent, he replied - "That you may babble." .
Do not be in a hurry to unwind to the center stick the roll of Heraclitus the Ephesian; the path is hard indeed to traverse. There is gloom and unrelieved darkness; but if an initiate leads you it shines more brightly than the shining sun.
Those who speak with sense must rely on what is common to all, as a city must rely on its law... (nb. common remains unknown to most)
The divine law has as much power as it wishes & is sufficient for all & is still left over.
Frag 114
