Sapere-Zitat für den Monat Februar

Ἤδη τοίνυν τινῶν ἤκουσα λεγόντων ὡς αὐτοῖς πλέουσι καὶ θορυβουμένοις φανεὶς ὁ θεὸς χεῖρα ὤρεξεν. ἕτεροι δέ γε φήσουσιν ὡς πράγματα ἄττα κατώρθωσαν ὑποθήκαις ἀκολουθήσαντες τοῦ θεοῦ. οὐδὲ ταῦτα ἀκούειν μᾶλλον ἢ λέγειν ἔχομεν πεπειραμένοι. 

I have heard some say that the god appeared to them and stretched out his hand to them when they were at sea and in trouble and others will say that they have succeeded in some business by following the god’s advice. This too I have experienced; I can speak of it, rather than listening to others’ stories.

 

Aelius Aristides, In Praise of Asclepius, SAPERE-Bd. 29, S. 48f. (Or. 42.10).
