Demokrits plausibler Ratschlag zur Elternschaft

A man who wants children would, I think, do better to get one from friends. The child will then be the sort that he wants – in this way it is possible to choose according to one’s mind from many, whereas, if one begets his own children, there are many dangers involved; for he must live with whomever he begets. [Fr. 277, trans. J.M. Robinson]
