Simonides, fragment 527 Page (tr. M.L. West):
There is no ill that men should not expect;
in a short space of time God
reshuffles everything.

οὐκ ἔστιν κακὸν
ἀνεπιδόκητον ἀνθρώποις· ὀλίγῳ δὲ χρόνῳ
πάντα μεταρρίπτει θεός.
Euripides, Suppliant Women 331 (tr. David Kovacs):
Heaven overturns all things.

ὁ γὰρ θεὸς πάντ᾽ ἀναστρέφει πάλιν.
