Headword: Λέγειν σὺ δεινός
Adler number: lambda,223
Translated headword: you are clever in speaking
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
["You are clever in speaking,] but I am bad at learning from you. For I have found you ill-disposed and severe towards me." The sense [is]: you for your part are clever in speaking, but I for my part do not listen to you with goodwill because of your ill-will.
Greek Original:
Λέγειν σὺ δεινός, μανθάνειν δ' ἐγὼ κακὸς σοῦ. δυσμενῆ γὰρ καὶ βαρύν σ' εὕρηκ' ἐμοί: ὁ νοῦς: σὺ μὲν δεινὸς εἶ ἐν τῷ λέγειν, ἐγὼ δὲ οὐ μετ' εὐνοίας σου ἀκούω διὰ τὴν δυσμένειαν.
