176
Zeus, who leads onward mortals to be wise,
Appoints that suffering masterfully teach.
In sleep, before the heart of each,
A woe-remembering travail sheds in dew
Discretion, -- ay, and melts the unwilling too
By what, perchance, may be a graciousness
Of gods, enforced no less, --
As they, commanders of the crew,
Assume the awful seat.
