Plato's View of Philosophy

[What I devote myself to] is not something that can be put into words like other studies; but after long-continued interaction between teacher and student in joint pursuit of the matter, suddenly, like light leaping out when fire is kindled, it is born in the soul and thereafter nourishes itself.


Plato, Epistle VII (341c)
