The ancient people knew the power of science. Petronius in one of his works (The Banquet of Trimalchio) praises the power of knowledge:
Believe me, Primigenius, whatever you learn, you learn for your own good. Look at Philero the barrister: if he had not worked, he would not be keeping the wolf from the door to-day. It is not so long since he used to carry loads round on his back and sell them, and now he makes a brave show even against Norbanus. Yes, education is a treasure, and culture never dies.
Gaius Petronius, The Banquet of Trimalchio
