Plutarch, Beasts Are Rational, 989e


nanIgrumbled at my life, finding myself destitute of the most important things and a loser in the lottery of fortune. This is the reason why, as Irecall, when Isaw you once in Crete tricked out in holiday attire, it was not your intellect or your virtue that Ienvied, but the softness of the elegantly woven garment and the beautiful wool of your purple cloak that Iadmired and gaped at (the clasp, Ibelieve, was of gold and had some frivolity worked on it in exquisitely fine intaglio). Ifollowed you about as enchanted as a woman. But now Iam rid and purified of all those empty illusions. Ihave no eyes for gold and silver
