Proclus of Lycia: “If I were the master …”

Never a smart or honorable impulse: “If I were the master, of all the ancient books I should allow the circulation of only the [Chaldaean] Oracles and [Plato’s] Timaeus.”

– Proclus, according the the Life of Proclus by Marinus of Neapolis (modern Nablus)
