"What inconceivable madness! For it
is not enough to call an opinion 'foolishness'
when it is utterly devoid of reason. However,
Diogenes the Stoic makes some concession to the
Chaldeans. He says that they have the power of
prophecy to the extent of being able to tell the
disposition of any child and the calling for which he
is best fitted. All their other claims of prophetic
powers he absolutely denies. He says, for example,
that twins are alike in appearance, but that they are
generally unlike in career and in fortune. Procles
and Eurysthenes, kings of the Lacedaemonians,
were twin brothers.
