Greek proverb: δῆρόν τε μένειν, κενεόν τε νεέσθαι

Here's a saying from Apostolius, C1.72, with a Latin version from Clavis Homerica. The image is from Mad_m4tty at Flickr. Here are some more Apostolius proverbs.

Αἰσχρόν τοι δῆρόν τε μένειν κενεόν τε νεέσθαι.
Turpe est et mansisse diu vacuumque redire.
It is a shameful thing to have stayed away a long time and to come back empty.
