The Most Miserable of All Creatures

Homer, Iliad 17.446–447 (tr. A.T. Murray, rev. William F. Wyatt):
For truly there is nothing, I think, more miserable than man
among all things that breathe and move on earth.

οὐ μὲν γάρ τί πού ἐστιν ὀιζυρώτερον ἀνδρὸς
πάντων ὅσσα τε γαῖαν ἔπι πνείει τε καὶ ἕρπει.
