The Journey of the Soul

No soul returns to the place it fell from for ten thousand years – it takes that long for wings to grow again… [But] at the completion of the third thousand year circuit, if these souls have chosen the philosophical life three times in succession, they regain their wings and in the three thousandth year they return… Only the philosophical mind deserves to grow wings. – Plato, Phaedrus
