I am whatever was, or is, or will be; and my veil no mortal ever took up.1
Of Isis and Osiris.
Note 1. I am the things that are, and those that are to be, and those that have been. No one ever lifted my skirts; the fruit which I bore was the sun.Proclus: On Platos Timæus, p. 30 D. (Inscription in the temple of Neith at Sais, in Egypt.) [back]
