Scripta Antiquitatis Posterioris ad Ethicam REligionemque pertinentia Schriften der späteren Antike zu ethischen und religiösen Fragen

Sapere-Zitat für den Monat September

καὶ δὴ λέγωμεν ἀπ’ ἀρχῆς ἀρξάμενοι, κοινὰ μὲν οἶδ’ ὅτι καὶ βοώμενα, πῶς γὰρ οὔ; τοσούτῳ δ’ ἡμῖν δικαιότερα, ὅσῳ προστιθέντες καὶ πλεονάζοντες ταῖς θεραπείαις ἀμείνους ἂν εἴημεν ἢ παραλείποντες ἃ μηδεὶς τῶν πάντων ἀξιοῖ σιγᾶν. 

Let us now start at the beginning, and say what I know is commonplace and trite – of course it is – but is all the more our duty to repeat, because we should do better service by enlarging and multiplying than by leaving out what nobody thinks ought to be left unsaid.


Aelius Aristides, In Praise of Asclepius, SAPERE-Bd. 29, S. 44f. (Or. 39.3).
