"Doubtless you are the people, and wisdom will die with you!1
But I have a mind as well as you; I am not inferior to you. Who does not know all these things?2
"I have become a laughingstock3 to my friends,4 though I called upon God and he answered5-- a mere laughingstock, though righteous and blameless!6
Men at ease have contempt7 for misfortune as the fate of those whose feet are slipping.8
