Words to Live By

Theognis 1047-1048 (tr. Douglas E. Gerber):
Now let's delight in drink and fine talk.
   What will happen afterwards is up to the gods.
The same (tr. M.L. West):
For now, let's talk of good things, drink, enjoy ourselves:
   what comes afterwards is the gods' affair.
The Greek:
νῦν μὲν πίνοντες τερπώμεθα, καλὰ λέγοντες·
   ἅσσα δ᾿ ἔπειτ᾿ ἔσται, ταῦτα θεοῖσι μέλει.
