Off Topic: Flute Players and Brains

<x-flowed>Here's a quote from a flute player's web page:

Trevor Wye ascribes the following to "A Greek Philosopher, 2000 years ago":

        "Flute players have brains, of that there's no doubt!
         but alas and alack, for they soon blow them out!"

Any idea who said that? Can I find the original Greek on Perseus?
