Clement (Alexandria, 150 - 215 AD),
Who Is the Rich Man
That Shall Be Saved?
, Chapter 21
"Therefore, on hearing those words, the blessed Peter,
chosen, the pre-eminent, the first of the disciples
, for whom
alone and Himself the Savior paid tribute, quickly seized and
comprehended the saying. And what does he say? 'Lo, we
have left all and followed Thee'."
