  CHECK READING LIST (1)  

A blockhead, bit by fleas, put out the light,
  And chuckling cried, "Now you can't see to bite!"
      - in "Greek Anthology" [Fleas]

A boy of five years old serene and gay,
  Unpitying Hades hurried me away,
    Yet weep not for Callimachus: if few
      The days I lived, few were my sorrows too.
      - in "Greek Anthology" [Gods]

How gracious are the gods in bestowing high positions; and how reluctant are they to insure them when given.
      - [Gods]

Poverty persuades a man to do and suffer everything that he may escape from it.
      - [Poverty]
