This maxim appears in fuller form, “ἀλλ᾽ οὔ πως ἅμα πάντα δυνήσεαι αὐτὸς ἑλέσθαι Ν” 729, cf. “οὐ πάντεσσι θεοὶ χαρίεντα διδοῦσιν θ” 167. cf. non omnia nimirum eidem di dedere Livy xxii. 51, Maharbal to Hannibal.—“No man has at the same time the wise experience of old age and the fiery vigor of youth.”
