Beyond all expectation

Pindar: Pythian 12
τὸ δὲ μόρσιμον οὐ παρφυκτόν,—ἀλλ᾽ἔσται χρόνος
οὗτος, καί τιν᾽ ἀελπτίᾳ βαλὼν
ἔμπαλιν γνώμας τὸ μὲν δώσει, τὸ δ᾽ οὔπω.

What is fated cannot be escaped. But that time will come,
striking unexpectedly, and give one thing beyond all expectation,
and withhold another.
