 ?? Solon
Count no man happy until he be dead
Means that life's fortune may turn at any moment. According to anecdotal accounts from Herodotus and Plutarch, Solon gave this advice to Croesus, king of Lydia, while visiting Sardis, capital of Lydia. Croesus failed to appreciate the advice until he, a self-described happiest man alive, has lost his kingdom to the Persian king Cyrus and was awaiting execution.
