Bruno Snell

Human nature has no knowledge, but the divine nature has. Statements similar to this saying of Heraclitus are made by a number of pre-Socratic philosophers, as also by Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. They were preceded in this view by Homer, and at the opposite end of the historical development the Christians may be cited to the same effect.

Only man’s knowledge is imperfect, but the wisdom of god is faultless.
