Got it !

If you look for "mighty thoughts" in the .pdf file,
you'll come onto:

Alas poor witling, and can't you see
That for mighty thoughts and heroic aims
the words themselves must appropriate be ?"

which is not really far from the formulation I found
in Oracle documentation.

Of course, we should now find the original Greek text.
