"Because of [his] undeserved misfortunes [he] endured poverty."[1]
"So we say that poverty is the sister of destitution." Aristophanes in Wealth [sc. says this]. "[sc. Yes,] if also [you say] that Dionysios is like Thrasyboulos." For Dionysios [is] entirely a tyrant, whereas Thrasyboulos [is] a patriot and greater than any speech. In reference to those who compare dissimilar things.[2]

[2] An exchange between Chremylos and Poverty in Aristophanes, Wealth [Plutus] 549-550 (web address 1), with scholion; cf. pi 3052. (In the Suda's version of 549 the particle dh/pou is omitted.) 'Dionysios' here is evidently the tyrant of Syracuse (delta 1178); and for Thrasyboulos, an Athenian general and elder statesman, see under alpha 4713.
