Theognis

(540 BC - 480 BC / Greece)

Fragments - Lines 1267 - 1270 - Poem by Theognis

A boy and a horse are alike in mind, for the horse does not
Weep for its rider when he lies in the dust,
But, fed full with barley, it carries the next man;
And in just this way the boy too loves whoever is at hand.
