quoting proverbs
by Erasmus

The various phrases in Greek in the original text come from a series of adages, with another allusion by Folly to the identity of her inventor.

The first two adages refer to man's inability to help himself and his need to rely on Fortune.

Note to My Followers which is Part 3 of Folly Speaks from "The Praise Of Folly"
