Justice turns the scale, bringing to some learning through suffering.
On him who wields power gently, the god looks favorably from afar.
Justice shines in very smoky homes, and honors the righteous; but the gold-spangled mansions where the hands are unclean she leave ...
You shall learn, though late, the lesson of how to be discreet.
Of prosperity mortals can never have enough.
Who apart from the gods is without pain for his whole lifetime's length?
I know that men in exile feed on hopes.
For the impious act begets more after it, like to the parent stock.
Since long I've held silence a remedy for harm.
The rest I keep silent; a great ox stands on my tongue.
