"The soul in her totality has the care of inanimate being everywhere, and traverses the whole heaven in divers forms appearing; --when perfect and fully winged she soars upward, and orders the whole world; whereas the imperfect soul, losing her wings and drooping in her flight at last settles on the solid ground -- there, finding a home, she receives an earthly frame which appears to be self-moved, but is really moved by her power; and this composition of soul and body is called a living and mortal creature. - Plato, "Phaedrus", passage 246b-246c."
