Greek proverb: τἀγαθά

Here's a saying from Apostolius, C4.37, with a Latin version from Clavis Homerica. The image is from Wikipedia. Here are some more Apostolius proverbs.

Αὐτομάτως ὁ θεὸς ἀνίησι τἀγαθά.
Sponte Deus bona emittit.
God freely sends forth good things.

In his Adagia, Erasmus renders the Greek as Ultro deus subiicit bona.
