Philocleon goes on with his fable while Bdelycleon is carrying him off the scene by main force.

[1450] I envy you your happiness, old man. What a contrast to his former frugal habits and his very hard life! Taught now in quite another school, he will know nothing but [1455] the pleasures of ease. Perhaps he will jibe at it, for indeed it is difficult to renounce what has become one's second nature. However, many have done it, [1460] and adopting the ideas of others, have changed their use and wont.
