μὴ σύ γ᾽ ἐπ᾽ ἀλλοτρίης, ὤνθρωφ᾽
, ἵζοιο τραπέζης,
ψωμὸν ὀνείδειον γαστρὶ χαριζόμενος,
ἄλλοτε μὲν κλαίοντι καὶ ἐστυγνωμένῳ ὄμμα
συγκλαίων, καὖθις σὺν γελόωντι γελῶν,

οὔτε σύ γε κλαυθμοῦ κεχρημένος, οὔτε γέλωτος,
καὶ κλαιωμιλίη, καὶ γελοωμιλίη.

— Paton edition

Sit not, Ο man, at another's table indulging thy
belly with the bread of reproach, now weeping with
the weeper and the sour-countenanced, and now
laughing with the laugher, sharing both laughter
and tears when thou hast no need of either.
