τὸ σοφὸν δ᾽ οὐ σοφία
τό τε μὴ θνητὰ φρονεῖν .
βραχὺς αἰών : ἐπὶ τούτῳ
δέ τις ἂν μεγάλα διώκων
τὰ παρόντ᾽ οὐχὶ φέροι .
But being clever isn’t wisdom .
And thinking deeply about things
isn’t suitable for mortal men .
Our life is brief that’s why the man who chases greatness
fails to grasp what’s near at hand .
