το πέρδεσθαι ου κατεισχύνει, πάντων γαρ περδομένων

Is this a true quote?

As I say, it's in no ancient corpus that I know of.  And it's not very good Greek, either.  Γάρ is used incorrectly, καταισχύνει is misspelled, etc.  Schoolboy stuff, maybe.  Where'd you get it?

Περί του πέρδεσθαι ου καταισχύνη έλεγαν οι αρχαίοι.
Διότι ως γνωστόν πάντες περδόμενοι εισί.
Κι έτσι γλυκειά μου μπορείς κι εσύ αναφανδόν...

Και βρήκα:

ἡ μεταφορὰ ἀπὸ τῶν ὄνων· χαίροντες γὰρ πέρδονται.
ἥδομαι, φησίν, ἐκφυγὼν τὴν ἀσπίδα ἢ ἐκδὺς τὸ γῆρας.

Argumentum-dramatis personae-scholion sch pac, verse 335, line 1

Spiro, I see you've changed τὸ πέρδεσθαι in the title to περί τοῦ πέρδεσθαι, and I've emended my translation accordingly.  Do we now have the original words of the quotation?  Sorry, I can't find it in the refs. you provided.
