Our Policies

Aristophanes, Assemblywomen 473-475 (tr. Jeffrey Henderson):

that however brainless or foolish our policies,
all our affairs will turn out for the best.

λόγος γέ τοί τις ἔστι τῶν γεραιτέρων,
ὅσ᾿ ἂν ἀνόητ᾿ ἢ μῶρα βουλευσώμεθα,
ἅπαντ᾿ ἐπὶ τὸ βέλτιον ἡμῖν ξυμφέρειν.
R.G. Ussher ad loc.:
