Apollonius of Tyana
To the monopolisers of corn in Aspendus:

"The earth is the common mother of all, for she is just. You
are unjust, for you have made her only the mother of yourself:
and if you will not cease from acting thus, I will not suffer
you to remain upon her."

My man.

"We shall also assume that the earth is spheroidal, that its surface is likewise spheroidal, and above all, that bodies have a tendency towards its centre, which latter point is clear to the perception of the most average understanding"

Stanley Kubricks alternative titles for Dr. Strangelove from his notebook. From the Kubrick expo at #CCCB in #Barcelona. Personally I would have loved to see what he would do to Uranus.

Gnostic Jesus on Capitalists:

"The savior said, "Truly, as for [those], do not esteem them as men, but regard them [as] beasts, for just as beasts devour one another, so also men of this sort devour one another. On the contrary, they are deprived of [the kingdom] since they love the sweetness of the fire and are servants of death and rush to the works of corruption."
