“Someone once said that more evil than good falls to the human lot; but I hold the opposite opinion, and think that in human life the good outweighs the bad: were it not so, we would not today stand in the light.”
ἔλεξε γάρ τις ὡς τὰ χείρονα
πλείω βροτοῖσίν ἐστι τῶν ἀμεινόνων:
ἐγὼ δὲ τούτοις ἀντίαν γνώμην ἔχω,
πλείω τὰ χρηστὰ τῶν κακῶν εἶναι βροτοῖς:
εἰ μὴ γὰρ ἦν τόδ᾽, οὐκ ἂν ἦμεν ἐν φάει
The former (noun) means recommendation.
The latter (verb) means the act of recommending.

Just a bad practice. Confuses everyone.
The simpler, the better. Keep that in mind as often as possible.
