“Doubtless you are the only people who matter, and wisdom will die with you!
But I have a mind as well as you; I am not inferior to you. Who does not know all these things?
“I have become a laughingstock to my friends, though I called on God and he answered— a mere laughingstock, though righteous and blameless!
Those who are at ease have contempt for misfortune as the fate of those whose feet are slipping.
