The Human Condition

Solon, fragment 14 (tr. M.L. West):
Nor yet is any mortal fortunate, but all
    are wretched that the sun looks down upon.

οὐδὲ μάκαρ οὐδεὶς πέλεται βροτός, ἀλλὰ πονηροὶ
    πάντες ὅσους θνητοὺς ἠέλιος καθορᾷ.
See Maria Noussia-Fantuzzi, Solon the Athenian, the Poetic Fragments (Leiden; Brill, 2010), pp. 357-358.
