Self-Inflicted Wounds

Procopius, History of the Wars 2.26.36 (tr. H.B. Dewing):
For men, as a general thing, bring down upon their own heads the most of the misfortunes which are going to befall them.

οἱ γὰρ ἄνθρωποι τὰ πολλὰ τῶν ἀτυχημάτων σφίσιν αὐτοῖς ἐκ τοῦ ἐπὶ πλεῖστον τῶν ξυμβησομένων προστρίβονται.
