Homer, Odyssey 1.32-4

“Wretches! Mortals are always blaming the gods,

claiming that evil comes from us even though

They have pain beyond their due thanks to their own stupidity.”

 

ὢ πόποι, οἷον δή νυ θεοὺς βροτοὶ αἰτιόωνται:

ἐξ ἡμέων γάρ φασι κάκ᾽ ἔμμεναι, οἱ δὲ καὶ αὐτοὶ

σφῇσιν ἀτασθαλίῃσιν ὑπὲρ μόρον ἄλγε᾽ ἔχουσιν
