Wisdom of Apollonius

With a favorable wind, Apollonius and his disciple Damis arrived in Rhodes. As they approached, the Colossus of Rhodes stood gigantic and majestic in their view.

In awe, Damis asked his teacher, “Do you think anything could be greater than that?” Apollonius replied, “Yes, a man who loves wisdom in a sound and innocent spirit.” From The Life of Apollonius of Tyana written by Philostratus circa 208 AD
