Euripides


Greek playwright.
Euripides
'Twas but my tongue, 'twas not my soul that swore.
Euripides quotes
Today's today. Tomorrow we may be
ourselves gone down the drain of Eternity.
Euripides
A bad beginning makes a bad ending.




Euripides quotes
O lady, nobility is thine, and thy form is the reflection of thy nature!
Euripides
quem Iuppiter vult perdere, dementat prius.
Euripides quotes
Dishonour will not trouble me, once I am dead.
Euripides
Time cancels young pain.
Euripides quotes
When good men die their goodness does not perish,
But lives though they are gone. As for the bad,
All that was theirs dies and is buried with them.
Euripides
Where two discourse, if the one's anger rise,
The man who lets the contest fall is wise.
Euripides
The devil when he purports any evil against man, first perverts his mind.
Euripides
Doth some one say that there be gods above?
There are not; no, there are not. Let no fool,
Led by the old false fable, thus deceive you.
Look at the facts themselves, yielding my words
No undue credence: for I say that kings
Kill, rob, break oaths, lay cities waste by fraud,
And doing thus are happier than those
Who live calm pious lives day after day. All divinity
Is built-up from our good and evil luck.




Euripides quotes
Humility, a sense of reverence before the sons of heaven of all the prizes that a mortal man might win, these, I say, are wisest; these are best.
Euripides
Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish.
Euripides quotes
I have found power in the mysteries of thought,
exaltation in the changing of the Muses;
I have been versed in the reasonings of men;
but Fate is stronger than anything I have known.
Euripides
Slight not what 's near through aiming at what's far.
Euripides quotes
Circumstances rule men and not men circumstances.
Euripides
A second wife is hateful to the children of the first; A viper is not more hateful.
Euripides quotes
This is slavery, not to speak one's thought.
Euripides
No one can confidently say that he will still be living tomorrow.
Euripides
Slow but sure moves the might of the gods.
