Robert Bridges, ed. (1844–1930).  The Spirit of Man: An Anthology.  1916.
From Phaedo

Plato (427?–347 B.C.)
BUT 1 when the soul giveth heed with her proper faculty, she is at once away and off into that other world of Purity, Eternity, Immortality and things unchanging; and finding there her kindred, she leagueth herself with them (so long at least as she is true to herself and possesseth herself), when she wandereth no more, but ever in that way and with regard to those things, she remaineth constant, since such they are that she has laid hold of. And this state of the soul is called Understanding.  1
Note 1. Plato. ‘Phaedo’, 79 D. [Trans. R. Bridges.] [See 16.] [back]
