|"The lyre players . . . cultivate self-control in order that the youths not commit evil deeds; in addition, having learned to play the lyre, they teach them the works of good poets of another sort, namely the lyrical, which they accompany on the lyre, accustoming the minds of the children with harmonia and rhythmia. By this means their harmonia and rhythmia become better, and so they become more civilized, and so more capable in whatever they say or do, for good harmonia and rhythmia are required by the whole of human life." (Plato, Protagoras 326a-b)|
