Chorus 1001Truly blooming health does not rest content within its due bounds; for disease ever presses close against it, its neighbor with a common wall. [Note] 1005So human fortune, when holding onward in straight course strikes upon a hidden reef. And yet, if with a well-measured throw, caution heaves overboard 1010a portion of the gathered wealth, the whole house, with woe overladen, does not founder nor engulf the hull. [Note]Truly the generous gift from Zeus, 1015rich and derived from yearly furrows, makes an end of the plague of famine.
