οὐ δύναται τῇ χειρὶ Πρόκλος τὴν ῥῖν᾽ ἀπομύσσειν
τῆς ῥινὸς γὰρ ἔχει τὴν χέρα μικροτέρην:
οὐδὲ λέγει Ζεῦ σῶσον ἐὰν πταρῇ:᾿: οὐ γάρ ἀκούει
τῆς ῥινός: πολὺ γὰρ τῆς ἀκοῆς ἀπέχει.

— Paton edition

Proclus cannot wipe his nose with his hand, for his arm is shorter than his nose ; nor does he say "God preserve us" when he sneezes, for he can’t hear his nose, it is so far away from his ears.
