Johnson, Samuel: Epigramma (Epigram in Hungarian)

Portre of Johnson, Samuel
Portre of Gergely Ágnes

Epigram (English)

If a man who turnips cries

Cry not when his father dies,

Is it not a proof he'd rather

Have a turnip than his father?

Epigramma (Hungarian)

Aki krokodilkönnyet sír,

ha apját elnyeli a sír -

annak a krokodil fontosabb,

mint apja, ez a tisztes agg?
