Plato, Gorgias 452e

 “The businessman will seem to make money for someone besides himself, for you, the man adept at speaking and persuading the masses.”

 

ὁ δὲ χρηματιστὴς οὗτος ἄλλῳ ἀναφανήσεται χρηματιζόμενος καὶ οὐχ αὑτῷ, ἀλλὰ σοὶ τῷ δυναμένῳ λέγειν καὶ πείθειν τὰ πλήθη.

 

So Plato has Gorgias say. (A man who (fatefully) persuaded the Athenians to take some interest in Sicily.)

Gorgias, Defense of Helen 1

 

“Kosmos is: a city well-peopled, a body’s beauty, a soul’s wisdom, virtue for a deed and the truth of a word.”

(1) Κόσμος πόλει μὲν εὐανδρία, σώματι δὲ κάλλος, ψυχῆι δὲ

σοφία, πράγματι δὲ ἀρετή, λόγωι δὲ ἀλήθεια·

 

“Kosmos is: a city well-peopled, a body’s beauty, a soul’s wisdom, virtue for a deed and the truth of a word.”

 

Yes, defense of that Helen.

 

Gorgias of Leontini, gorgeous with words.
