A Fool

Euripides, fragment 193 (from Antiope; probably Amphion speaking; tr. Christopher Collard and Martin Cropp):
Whoever is very active when he may be inactive,
is a fool, when he may live pleasurably without activity.

ὅστις δὲ πράσσει πολλὰ μὴ πράσσειν παρόν,
μῶρος, παρὸν ζῆν ἡδέως ἀπράγμονα.
