The Legacy of Ancient Greece

The Greek View of Life

Our welcome to thee, old man, who would see the marvels that

  science can show:
And thou, the high priest of this subtlety feast, say what would
you have us bestow?
Since there is not a sage for whom we'd engage our wonders
more freely to do,
Except, it may be, for Prodicus: he for his knowledge may claim
them, but you,
Because as you go, you glance to and fro, and in dignified
arrogance float;
And think shoes a disgrace, and put on a grave face, your
  acquaintance with us to denote.
