ἄνθρωπός ἐστι πνεῦμα καὶ σκιὰ μόνον -> human being is only a breath and a shadow

Ο άνθρωπος είναι φθαρτός, μόνο το πνεύμα του επιζεί
Ὁ ἄνθρωπος εἶναι μόν’ ἀνάσα καὶ σκιά.
Een mens is slechts wind en schaduw
l'homme n'est que souffle et ombre
l'uomo non è che soffio e ombra
nil aliud ac umbra atque flatus est homo
