Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? – Isaiah
“…so long as it was telling the truth”
Everyone who lived at that time,
not being as wise as you young ones are today,
found it rewarding enough in their simplicity
to listen to an oak or even a stone,
so long as it was telling the truth.
— Plato, Phaedros
