The Drudgery of the Pedagogue

H.T. Riley, Dictionary of Latin and Greek Quotations, Proverbs, Maxims, and Mottos (London: George Bell & Sons, 1891), p. 543:
Οἱ αὐτοὶ περὶ τῶν αὐτῶν αὐτοῖς τὰ αὐτά.—"The same persons saying the same things to the same persons, about the same things." A proverbial saying quoted by Grangaeus, a commentator on Juvenal, illustrative of the drudgery of the pedagogue. Observe the declension of αὐτός in the Nominative, Genitive, Dative, and Accusative cases.
I don't have access to Grangaeus' commentary on Juvenal (Paris, 1614), but see Isaac Casaubon, ed., D. Iunii Iuvenalis Aquinatis Satyrae... (Leiden: Apud Petrum Vander, 1695), p. 208 (on Juvenal 7.153 eadem cantabit versibus isdem), where this Greek sentence is quoted out of Grangaeus.
