The best thing I read today was a moral from Ammianus Marcellinus about letting your friends talk you out of bad decisions, but then just now I was looking up ἄμουσος (adj., lit. lacking the Muses; uncultivated, uncultured) because Symmachus had used it ironically of himself in a letter to Ausonius, but then the lexicon led me on to Plato’s use of the same term:
ἄμουσαι ἡδοναί, ἁμαρτήματα!
-Plato, Phaedrus 240 B
uncultured pleasures, sins!
-Plato, The Phaedrus 240 B (and he uses the phrase again in Laws 863 C)
Thanks, dear reader, should you ever find me, for being my gadfly.
