Any mortal who doesn't try to add some pleasure to his life and let everything else go is a fool in my eyes and those of wise judges generally, and the gods have sent him bad luck.
ὅστις δὲ θνητὸς γενόμενος μὴ τῷ βίῳ
ζητεῖ τι τερπνὸν προσφέρειν, τὰ δ᾿ ἄλλ᾿ ἐᾷ,
μάταιός ἐστιν ἔν γ᾿ ἐμοὶ καὶ τοῖς σοφοῖς
κριταῖς ἅπασιν ἐκ θεῶν τε δυστυχής.
