Proclus on Cognition

"Every cognition through similitude binds the knower to that which is known: to the sensible or object of sense-perception the perceptive cognition, to cognizable objects discursive reason, to intelligible objects intelligible cognition, and therefore also to that which is prior to intellect the flower of the intellect is correspondent. "(Proclus, Commentary on the Chaldaean Oracles cited in Johnson 1988: 125)
