Your Lot

Isocrates, To Demonicus 29 (tr. George Norlin):
Be content with your present lot, but seek a better one.

Taunt no man with his misfortune; for fate is common to all and the future is a thing unseen.

στέργε μὲν τὰ παρόντα, ζήτει δὲ τὰ βελτίω.

μηδενὶ συμφορὰν ὀνειδίσῃς· κοινὴ γὰρ ἡ τύχη καὶ τὸ μέλλον ἀόρατον.

βελτίω Γ, Stobaeus: βέλτιστα ΕΖ
Sandys ad loc.:
