Marcus Aurelius, ‘Communings with Himself’ XII.28

“To those who ask ‘Where have you seen the gods, or from where have you learned that they exist, that you worship them as you do?’ First, they are visible even to the eyes; secondly, I have not seen my own soul and yet I honour it. And so too with the gods, I experience their power every moment, from which I apprehend that they exist, and I revere them.”
