Heraclitus fr. 67 1-2

 

“god—day is night, winter summer, war peace, satiety hunger, all things are their opposite—this is the mind”

 

— —ὁ θεὸς ἡμέρη εὐφρόνη, χειμὼν θέρος, πόλεμος εἰρήνη, κόρος λιμός (τἀναντία ἅπαντα· οὗτος ὁ νοῦς)

Yeah, some of this is Orwellian. But does that make it (un)true?
