Hesiod (flourished c. 8th century BCE)

“As for those who give straight judgments to visitors and to their own people and do not deviate from what is just, their community flourishes, and the people blooms in it.”

  • From Hesiod’s Works and Days (approximately between lines 219-233), translated by M. L. West (Oxford World Classics, 1988, 1999, 2008).
