Aristophanes [writes]: "if only you would chuck out what you put in as easily as you found it."[1] In reference to those who achieved renown unexpectedly. The [word] "you found" signifies the gaining of advantage over someone[2] through toil and labor; and there is proof of the wisdom and discernment of the one toiling. But "to find" is simply a proof of providential luck, and not of the wisdom and discernment of the one finding it.
