I'll tell the names and sayings and the places of their birth,
Of the seven great ancient sages so read more

I'll tell the names and sayings and the places of their birth,
Of the seven great ancient sages so renowned on Grecian earth,
The Lindian Cleobulus said, "The mean was still the best";
The Spartan Chilo said, "Know thyself," a heaven-born phrase
confessed.
Corinthian Periander taught "Our anger to command,"
"Too much of nothing," Pittacus, from Mitylene's strand;
Athenian Solon this advised, "Look to the end of life,"
And Bias from Priene showed, "Bad men are the most rife";
Milesian Thales uregd that "None should e'er a surety be";
Few were there words, but if you look, you'll much in little see.
