Concerning the Gods, there are those who deny the very existence of the Godhead; others say that it exists, but that it neither bestirs nor concerns itself, nor has forethought, for anything.

A fourth party admits things on earth as well as in heaven, but only in general, and not with respect to each individual.

A fifth, of whom were Ulysses and Socrates, are those that cry:--I move not without Thy knowledge!
