Theocritus
The Greeks got into Troy by trying, my pretties; everything's done by trying.
Theocritus quotes
Milk the ewe that thou hast, why pursue the thing that shuns thee?
Theocritus
Reflect, ere you spurn me, that youth at his sides
Wears wings; and once gone, all pursuit he derides.




Theocritus quotes
Men shall look on thee and murmur to each other, "Lo! how small
Was the gift, and yet how precious! Friendship's gifts are priceless all."
Theocritus
The godly seed fares well: the wicked's is accurst.
Theocritus quotes
Faults are beauties, when survey'd by love.
