[1] As Adler notes, this phrase appears (albeit with the participle kaqhdupaqw=n, not the infinitive), in Basil of Caesarea, PG 31.301a4 (= Homilia in divites 8).
[2] Quotation not identified by Adler but perhaps [WEH] an echo of Synesius? See Oratio de regno 6 (kaqhdupaqei= th\n e)cousi/an); Aegyptii sive de providentia 1.13 (kaqhdupaqh/sein th\n e)cousi/an).
