Fishermen catching a Stone

Ἁλιεῖς λίθον ἀγρεύσαντες

λιεῖς σαγήνην εἷλκον: βαρείας δὲ αὐτῆς οὔσης, ἔχαιρον καὶ ὠρχοῦντο, πολλὴν εἶναι νομίζοντες τὴν ἄγραν. Ὡς δὲ ἀφελκύσαντες ἐπὶ τὴν ἠιόνα τῶν μὲν ἰχθύων ὀλίγους εὗρον, λίθων δὲ καὶ ἄλλης ὕλης μεστὴν τὴν σαγήνην, οὐ μετρίως ἐβαρυθύμουν, οὐ τοσοῦτον ἐπὶ τῷ συμβεβηκότι δυσφοροῦντες ὅσον ὅτι καὶ τὰ ἐναντία προειλήφεισαν.
Εἷς δέ τις ἐν αὐτοῖς γηραιὸς ὢν εἶπεν: «Ἀλλὰ παυσώμεθα, ὦ ἑταῖροι: χαρᾶς γάρ, ὡς ἔοικεν, ἀδελφή ἐστιν ἡ λύπη, καὶ ἡμᾶς ἔδει τοσαῦτα προησθέντας πάντως παθεῖν τι καὶ λυπηρόν.»

Ἀτὰρ οὖν καὶ ἡμᾶς δεῖ τοῦ βίου τὸ εὐμετάβλητον ὁρῶντας μὴ τοῖς αὐτοῖς πράγμασιν ἀεὶ ἐπαγάλλεσθαι, λογιζομένους ὅτι ἐκ πολλῆς εὐδίας ἀνάγκη καὶ χειμῶνα γενέσθαι.
