1. Plato, Laws, None (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

889b. Ath. I will explain it more clearly. Fire and water and earth and air, they say, all exist by nature and chance, and none of them by art; and by means of these, which are wholly iimate, the bodies which come next—those, namely, of the earth, sun, moon and stars—have been brought into existence. It is by chance all these elements move, by the interplay of their respective forces, and according as they meet together and combine fittingly,—hot with cold, dry with moist
2. Plato, Phaedo, None (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

98b. So I thought when he assigned the cause of each thing and of all things in common he would go on and explain what is best for each and what is good for all in common. I prized my hopes very highly, and I seized the books very eagerly and read them as fast as I could, that I might know as fast as I could about the best and the worst. My glorious hope, my friend, was quickly snatched away from me. As I went on with my reading I saw that the man made no use of intelligence
3. Plato, Timaeus, None (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

48a. For, in truth, this Cosmos in its origin was generated as a compound, from the combination of Necessity and Reason. And inasmuch as Reason was controlling Necessity by persuading her to conduct to the best end the most part of the things coming into existence, thus and thereby it came about, through Necessity yielding to intelligent persuasion, that this Universe of ours was being in this wise constructed at the beginning. Wherefore if one is to declare how it actually came into being on this wise, he must include also the form of the Errant Cause, in the way that it really acts. To this point, therefore, we must return
4. Xenophon, Memoirs, 1.4, 4.3 (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

5. Cicero, On The Nature of The Gods, 2.93 (2nd cent. BCE - 1st cent. BCE)

2.93. At this point must I not marvel that there should be anyone who can persuade himself that there are certain solid and indivisible particles of matter borne along by the force of gravity, and that the fortuitous collision of those particles produces this elaborate and beautiful world? I cannot understand why he who considers it possible for this to have occurred should not all think that, if a counts number of copies of the one-and‑twenty letters of alphabet, made of gold or what you will, were thrown together into some receptacle and then shaken out on the ground, it would be possible that they should produce the Annals of Ennius, all ready for the reader. I doubt whether chance could possibly succeed in producing even a single verse!
6. Marcus Aurelius Emperor of Rome, Meditations, 2.2, 2.17, 3.2, 3.16, 4.3, 4.41, 5.13, 5.23, 6.32, 8.18, 8.56, 10.1, 10.6, 10.7.2, 11.3, 12.3, 12.14, 12.21 (2nd cent. CE - 2nd cent. CE)
