A dry soul is wisest and best.
From out of all the many particulars comes oneness, and out of oneness come all the many particulars.
The way up and the way down are one and the same.
If you do not expect the unexpected, you will not find it; for it is hard to be sought out, and difficult.
Everything flows and nothing abides; everything gives way and nothing stays fixed.
A man's character is his fate.
Source: alluded to by Aristotle in De Caelo and elsewhere
Character is destiny.
There is exchange of all things for fire and of fire for all things, as there is of wares for gold and of gold for wares.
God is day and night, winter and summer, war and peace, surfeit and hunger.
