πολλὰ τὰ δεινὰ κοὐδὲν ἀνθρώπου δεινότερον πέλει –> many things are formidable, and none more formidable than man

Πολλά γεννούν το δέος· το μέγα δέος ο άνθρωπος γεννά
Πολλά είναι τα φοβερά, μα τίποτα δεν υπάρχει πιο φοβερό απ' τον άνθρωπο.
Muchas cosas terribles hay; y, con todo, nada más terrible
Muchas son las maravillas [los prodigios, las cosas terribles], pero no hay nada más maravilloso [prodigioso, terrible] que el ser humano.

"multa sunt mala: sed homine nihil atrocius est."

many things are bad: but nothing is more atrocious than man.

or my thought...

Many things are feared, and [but] none is more feared than man.

Quote
Genesis 9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons. And he said to them: Increase, and multiply, and fill the earth.
2 And let the fear and dread of you be upon all the beasts of the earth, and upon all the fowls of the air, and all that move upon the earth: all the fishes of the sea are delivered into your hand.
