Walking through the Forum, two Athenian men a accosted Democritus, asking the philosopher if he could settle an argument over the difference between a free man and a slave.

“Of course,” said the Laughing Philosopher, “One of you two is slave and the other free, because the free man is armed against danger, while the slave has nothing to present save his heels.”

so i was,so it is, so it will be, so long as the water flows and the winds blow.
