A guardian should guard and a lover love.
τὸν φρουρὸν φρουεῖν χρή, τὸν ἐρῶντα δ᾿ ἐρᾶν.
Macarius, not always a household name.
Does χρήμ mean the same thing as χρή ? I’ve tried looking it up, but I haven’t been able to find it.
I can’t find it in the TLG easily either–I plucked it from Gerber’s Elegy Loeb (page 488). The reference there is Paroem. Gr. ii.219.10.
Sorry for the error. Sloppy Friday.
