"Wisdom is by far
The greatest part of happiness.
No irreverence
Must be shown to the gods.
The mighty words of overproud men
With mighty blows are punished,
And, with old age, teach wisdom"

"When the god, whichever one of the gods, had divided the substance
of Chaos and ordered it thus in its different constituent members,
first, in order that earth should hang suspended in perfect 
symmetrical balance, he moulded it into the shape of of a great sphere."
