Sites and monuments of Ancient Egypt
“Do you not know, Asclepius, that Egypt is an image of heaven or, to be more precise, that everything governed and moved in heaven came down to Egypt and was transferred there ? If truth were told, our land is the temple of the whole world.”
“And yet, since it befits the wise to know all things in advance, of this you must not remain ignorant: a time will come when it will appear that the Egyptians paid respect to divinity with faithful mind and painstaking reverence - to no purpose. All their holy worship will be disappointed and perish without effect, for divinity will return from earth to heaven, and Egypt will be abandoned."
“O Egypt, Egypt, of your reverent deeds only stories will survive, and they will be incredible to your children ! Only words cut in stone will survive to tell your faithful works."
