Thurot Commentary

1. V. les Entretiens.

Greek

νόσος σώματός ἐστιν ἐμπόδιον, προαιρέσεως δὲ οὔ, ἐὰν μὴ αὐτὴ θέλῃ. χώλανσις σκέλους ἐστὶν ἐμπόδιον, προαιρέσεως δὲ οὔ. καὶ τοῦτο ἐφ' ἑκάστου τῶν ἐμπιπτόντων ἐπίλεγε· εὑρήσεις γὰρ αὐτὸ ἄλλου τινὸς ἐμπόδιον, σὸν δὲ οὔ.

English

Sickness is an impediment to the body, but not to the will, unless itself pleases. Lameness is an impediment to the leg, but not to the will; and say this to yourself with regard to everything that happens. For you will find it to be an impediment to something else, but not truly to yourself.

DCC Notes

ἐμπόδιον: “an impediment,” “hindance” (to your body)

ἐὰν μή: “unless” (+ subj.)

αὐτὴ: refers back to προαιρέσεως.

θέλῃ: > ἐθέλω, 3 sg. pres. act. subj. in a present general condition (G. 650; S. 2295.1)

ἐμπιπτόντων: “of what has happened to you”

εὑρήσεις γὰρ αὐτὸ ἄλλου τινὸς ἐμπόδιον: sc. εἶναι

DCC Vocab

ἐμπόδιος, -ον, in the way, impeding, as substantive = an impediment

προαίρεσις, -εως, ἡ, the volition, will

σκέλος, -εος (ους when contractred), τό, leg
