Quotable Notables - Plato

I found this quote earlier when I was browsing through StumbleUpon -
According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with 4 arms, 4 legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other parts.

Plato's The Symposium

It's a nice thought in a slightly weird way!
