Voltaire - nothing is new in metaphysics!

I've added this quote to the beginning of "Nothing New: Religions Evolve From Previous Religions" by Vexen Crabtree (2007):
"In metaphysics, in moral philosophy, the ancients have said everything. We coincide with them, or we repeat them. All modern books of this kind are only repetitions."
- Voltaire (1764
