Simonides' Advice

Simonides, Poetae Melici Graeci, no. 646, from Theon, Progymnasmata 33 (tr. David A. Campbell):
Simonides' advice is harmful, that we should play throughout our lives and take nothing quite seriously.

βλαβερῶς παραινεῖ Σιμωνίδης παίζειν ἐν τῷ βίῳ καὶ περὶ μηδὲν ἁπλῶς σπουδάζειν.
Not harmful, but beneficial and wise, or so it seems to me.
