PLUTARCH

of God as the Prince of all good, the Father of all beauty, who, as He may experience no evil, so may do none. For He is good, and in the good no envy, fear, anger, nor hatred find a place. It is the property of good to do no harm, as it is the property of heat to warm, not to make cold. Anger, wrath, enmity, and terror are a world apart from grace, kindliness, humanity, and benevolence. The former belong to the world of evil and weakness, the latter to that of goodness and power. So God is not influenced by passion or by favour ; it is the divine nature to help and be kind ; it is alien from it to show anger or do harm., ` Mighty Zeus in heaven goes first, driving a winged car, ordering and caring for all: ' and among the other gods, one is The Giver, one The Gentle, one The Protector against harm, while Apollo, in Pindar's words,
Gentlest to mortals was proved.
'Everything', says Diogenes, 'belongs to God, and friends' possessions are shared in common, and the good are God's friends. It is impossible for those whom God loves to prosper ill, and impossible for the right-minded and just not to be loved by God.' Do you think that those who deny a Providence are not punished enough by cutting themselves off from this great pleasure and delight which we believers in the Divine enjoy ? Do they need any other punishment ? It is worth while quoting, in his own words, Hermogenes' view of God : 'These gods, who have all knowledge and all power, are so dear to me, that in their care for me I am never forgotten by them day or night, wherever I go or whatever I do : and by their foreknowledge they reveal to me whatever will happen, sending me messengers, omens, and dreams.'
It is natural that what comes to us from the gods should be beautiful. And the fact that it comes through their agency is of itself a source of great pleasure, unbounded confidence, and
