Translation:
Proper name.[1]
Heraclitus said that he valued the body very little and considered it more to be discarded than excrement. [He said that] he fulfilled its needs as simply as possible as long as he was under the god's orders to use his body as a tool.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἡράκλειτος: ὄνομα κύριον. ὅτι Ἡράκλειτος ἔφη, ὀλιγωρεῖν πάντη τοῦ σώματος καὶ νομίζειν αὐτὸ κοπρίων ἐκβλητότερον: ἐκ τοῦ ῥᾴστου δὲ αὐτῷ τὰς θεραπείας ἀποπληροῦν, ἕως ἂν ὁ θεὸς ὥσπερ ὀργάνῳ τῷ σώματι χρῆσθαι ἐπιτάττῃ.
