A Quote by Claudius Ptolemaeus (Ptolemy) on day, earth, food, and mortality

I know that I am mortal and the creature of a day; but when I search out the massed wheeling circles of the stars, my feet no longer touch the earth, but, side by side with Zeus himself, I take my fill of ambrosia, the food of the gods.

Ptolemy (100 - 178)
