3.14. For this cause, I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ 3.16. that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, that you may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inward man; 3.18. may be strengthened to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth 4.4. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as you also were called in one hope of your calling; 4.5. one Lord, one faith, one baptism 4.6. one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in us all.
3. Diogenes Laertius, Lives of The Philosophers, 8.28 (3rd cent. CE - 3rd cent. CE)

8.28. All things live which partake of heat – this is why plants are living things – but all have not soul, which is a detached part of aether, partly the hot and partly the cold, for it partakes of cold aether too. Soul is distinct from life; it is immortal, since that from which it is detached is immortal. Living creatures are reproduced from one another by germination; there is no such thing as spontaneous generation from earth. The germ is a clot of brain containing hot vapour within it; and this, when brought to the womb, throws out, from the brain, ichor, fluid and blood, whence are formed flesh, sinews, bones, hairs, and the whole of the body, while soul and sense come from the vapour within.
4. Eusebius of Caesarea, Preparation For The Gospel, 15.20.1 (3rd cent. CE - 4th cent. CE)
