Euripides

Euripides (c. 480 – c. 406 BC) was a tragedian of classical Athens. He is one of the few whose plays have survived, with the others being Aeschylus, Sophocles, and potentially Euphorion. Euripides is identified with theatrical innovations that have profoundly influenced drama down to modern times, especially in the representation of traditional, mythical heroes as ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances.

Love is all we have the only way that each can help the other.

Among mortals second thoughts are wisest.

One does nothing who tries to console a despondent person with word. A friend is one who aids with deeds at a critical time when deeds are called for.

Impudence is the worst of all human diseases.

Cleverness is not wisdom.

Along with success comes a reputation for wisdom.

Joint undertakings stand a better chance when they benefit both sides.

Events will take their course it is no good of being angry at them, he is happiest who wisely turns them to the best account.

New faces have more authority than accustomed ones.

Slight not what's near through aiming at what's far.

But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.

Silver and gold are not the only coin, virtue too passes current all over the world.

When a man's stomach is full it makes no difference whether he is rich or poor.

Down on your knees and thank heaven fasting for a good man's love.

Youth is the best time to be rich and the best time to be poor.

Nothing has more strength than dire necessity.

Question everything. Learn something. Answer nothing.

The wavering mind is but a base possession.

Forgive son, men are men, they needs must err.

Silence is true wisdom's best reply.
