Plato--Necessarily ;-)

This dialogue made me laugh.

'So the part of the mind whose views run counter to the measurements must be different from the part whose views fall in with the measurements.'
'Yes.'
'But it's the best part of the mind which accepts measurements and calculations.'
'Of course.'
'The part which opposes them, therefore, must be a low-grade part of the mind.'
'Necessarily.'

 Plato, Republic
