Aratus, Phaenomena 1142-1144 (tr. A.W. Mair):
Good rule it is to look for sign confirming sign. When two point the same way, forecast with hope; when three, with confidence.

                                      καλὸν δ᾿ ἐπὶ σήματι σῆμα
σκέπτεσθαι· μᾶλλον δὲ δυοῖν εἰς ταὐτὸν ἰόντων
ἐλπωρὴ τελέθοι, τριτάτῳ δέ κε θαρσήσειας.
