424 B.C.E

“So completely were they taken in by their current good fortune that they assumed that no-one could possible stand against them; and they believed that both the possible and the impossible alike could be accomplished, regardless of whether their resources were great or meagre. The reason for this was the completely unlooked for success in whatever they did, which greatly raised their expectations.”

—— Thucydides
