Here are two versions of the same quotation from the Odyssey by the “two Roberts” — Fagles & Fitzgerald. Hard to go wrong with either of these dudes.
From Fagles (Book 1, ll. 37 – 40):
Ah how shameless — the way these mortals blame the gods,
From us alone, they say, come all their miseries, yes,
but they themselves, with their own reckless ways,
compound their pains beyond their proper share.
From Fitzgerald (Book 1, ll. 48 – 51):
My word, how mortals take the gods to task!
All their afflictions come from us, we hear.
And what of their own failings? Greed and folly
double the sufferings in the lot of man.
Now go lift something heavy,
ps. The pic is of the great poet and translator, Robert Fitzgerald.
