Solon, (fr. 11 1-4) seems to echo Zeus’ comments from the Odyssey (that men are always blaming the gods).
“If you have suffered grief through your own wickedness
Don’t blame the gods for this fate.”
εἰ δὲ πεπόνθατε λυγρὰ δι’ ὑμετέρην κακότητα,
μὴ θεοῖσιν τούτων μοῖραν ἐπαμφέρετε·
The later Presocratic Critias (fr. 10.3) is more explicit in his play Pirithous:
“Fortune is a friend to men of good sense.”
ὡς τοῖσιν εὖ φρονοῦσι συμμαχεῖ τύχη
This is no Terminator ethic (“no fate but what we make”) but it is a long way off from oracular predestination!
“Happiness and unhappiness come from the soul.”
εὐδαιμονίη ψυχῆς καὶ κακοδαιμονίη.
“A man wholly committed to money can never be just.”
ὁ χρημάτων παντελῶς ἥσσων οὐκ ἄν ποτε εἴη δίκαιος.
“Old age is the perfect handicap: it has everything and lacks everything.”
γῆρας ὁλόκληρός ἐστι πήρωσις·
πάντ’ ἔχει καὶ πᾶσιν ἐνδεῖ.
“The path of all things goes backwards.”
…πάντων δὲ παλίντροπός ἐστι κέλευθος.
“It is not right to act and speak like men who are sleeping”
οὐ δεῖ ὥσπερ καθεύδοντας ποιεῖν καὶ λέγειν·
Heraclitus’ ideas probably influenced Plato.
Heraclitus has appeared here before.
