(10th century B. C), Greek poet
The Grecian ladies counted their age from their marriage, not from their birth.
No man of woman born, coward or brave, can shun his destiny.
Light is the task where many share the toil.
By Jove the stranger and the poor are sent, and what to these we give to Jove is lent.
Twins, even from the birth, are misery and man.
In saffron-colored mantle, from the tides of ocean rose the morning to bring light to gods and men.
To him who hearkens to the gods, the gods give ear.
Too much rest itself becomes a pain.
