“Great systems of thought, profound and skillful works of art, do not perish unless their material vehicle is utterly destroyed. They do not become fossils, because a fossil is lifeless and cannot reproduce itself. But they, whenever they find a mind to receive them, live again in it and make it live more fully.”

~ Gilbert Highet, The Classical Tradition
