Reading at Random in Classical Literature

Phaedrus, Fables 5.5.1-3

leave a comment »

pravo favore labi mortales solent
et, pro iudicio dum stant erroris sui,
ad paenitendum rebus manifestis agi.

Mortals tend to slip up as a result of improper partiality; and while they stand to defend their error they tend to be driven to be repentant by the plain facts.
