Plutarch, neé Plutarcho
b. 46; Greece
d. c. 127 AD

Plutarch, a priest of Apollo at the Oracle of Delphi, is better know as a biographer and historian for works like Parallel Lives and Moralia.

Plutarch quotes ~
• “It is not histories I am writing, but lives; and in the most glorious deeds there is not always an indication of virtue or vice, indeed a small thing like a phrase or a jest often makes a greater revelation of a character than battles where thousands die.” - Life of Alexander/Life of Julius Caesar
• “The soul, being eternal, after death is like a caged bird that has been released. If it has been a long time in the body, and has become tame by many affairs and long habit, the soul will immediately take another body and once again become involved in the troubles of the world. The worst thing about old age is that the soul's memory of the other world grows dim, while at the same time its attachment to things of this world becomes so strong that the soul tends to retain the form that it had in the body. But that soul which remains only a short time within a body, until liberated by the higher powers, quickly recovers its fire and goes on to higher things.” - The Consolation, Moralia

FYI ~ Plutarch's works were inspirational to Montaigne.
