πάντες μὲν δειλοὶ καὶ ἀλαζόνες εἰσί, καὶ εἴ τι
ἐν τοῖς ἀνθρώποις ἄλλο πέφυκε πάθος:
ἀλλ᾽ ὁ λογισμὸν ἔχων τῷ πλησίον οὐκ ἀναφαίνει,
ἔνδον ἀποκρύπτων τῇ συνέσει τὸ πάθος.

σῆς δὲ θύρα ψυχῆς ἀναπέπταται: οὐδένα λήθεις
οὔτε καταπτήσσων, οὔτε θρασυνόμενος.

— Paton edition

All are cowards and braggarts and whatever other fault there may be among men, yet he who has reason does not expose his fault to his neighbour, but in his wisdom hides it within. But thy soul’s door is flung wide open, and it is evident to all when thou crouchest in terror or art too brazen.
