ἅπανθ' ὁ μακρὸς κἀναρίθμητος χρόνος φύει τ' ἄδηλα καὶ φανέντα κρύπτεται· κοὐκ ἔστ' ἄελπτον οὐδέν, ἀλλ' ἁλίσκεται χὠ δεινὸς ὅρκος χαἰ περισκελεῖς φρένες. –> Long, unmeasurable Time brings to light everything unseen and hides what has been apparent. Nothing is beyond hope; even the fearsome oath and the most stubborn will is overcome. | All things long and countless time brings to birth in darkness and covers after they have been revealed! Nothing is beyond expectation; the dread oath and the unflinching purpose can be overcome.
