366:There is something in the pang of change more than the heart can bear, unhappiness remembering happiness. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
367:Greatness brings no profit to people. God indeed, when in anger, brings greater ruin to great mens houses. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove

372:What can we take on trust in this uncertain life? Happiness, greatness, pride - nothing is secure, nothing keeps. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove

375:A sharp-tempered woman, or, for that matter, a man, Is easier to deal with than the clever type Who holds her tongue. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
376:Only one in command: that's the way in the home And the way in the state when it must find Measures best for mankind. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
377:Since we are mortal, friendships are best kept to a moderate level, rather than sharing the very depths of our souls. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
378:Lucky that man whose children make his happiness in life and not his grief, the anguished disappointment of his hopes. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
379:For no mortal ever attains to blessedness. One may be luckier than another when wealth flows his way, but blessed never. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
380:The way of God is complex, he is hard for us to predict. He moves the pieces and they come somehow into a kind of order. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
381:Those who are held Wise among men and who search the reasons of things, are those who bring the most sorrow on themselves. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
382:A just cause needs no interpreting. It carries its own case. But the unjust argument since it is sick, needs clever medicine. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
383:Children are sweet as the buds in spring, But I've noticed that those who have them Have nothing but trouble all their lives. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
384:All men know their children Mean more than life. If childless people sneer- Well, they've less sorrow. But what lonesome luck! ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove

387:Soon all of you immortals Will be as dead as we are! Come on then, what are you waiting for? Have you run out of thunderbolts? ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
388:I loathe a friend whose gratitude grows old, a friend who takes his friend's prosperity but will not voyage with him in his grief ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
389:If I could remake the world, I'd banish women, send them away with all their trouble. Then children would come from a purer source. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
390:I think that fortune watcheth o'er our lives, surer than we. But well said: he who strives will find his goals strive for him equally. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
391:Learned we may be with another man's learning: we can only be wise with wisdom of our own: [I hate a sage who is not wise for himself] ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
392:Vengeance comes not slowly either upon you or any other wicked man, but steals silently and imperceptibly, placing its foot on the bad. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
393:To a father waxing old, nothing is dearer than a daughter; sons have spirits of a higher pitch, but less inclined to endearing fondness. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
394:No one is truly free, they are a slave to wealth, fortune, the law, or other people restraining them from acting according to their will. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove

397:I know indeed what evil I intend to do, but stronger than all my afterthoughts is my fury, fury that brings upon mortals the greatest evils. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
398:Our ancestors... purged their guilt by banishment, not death. And by so doing, they stopped that endless vicious cycle of murder and revenge. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
399:Who then will dare to say I'm weak or timid? No, they'll say I'm loyal as a friend, ruthless as a foe, so much like a hero destined for glory. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
400: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. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
401: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. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
402:I think it makes small difference to the dead, if they are buried in the tokens of luxury. All that is an empty glorification left for those who live. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
403: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. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
404:Do we, holding that the gods exist, deceive ourselves with insubstantial dreams and lies, while random careless chance and change alone control the world? ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
405:The gods have sent medicines for the venom of serpents, but there is no medicine for a bad woman. She is more noxious than the viper, or than fire itself. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
406:No man on earth is truly free, All are slaves of money or necessity. Public opinion or fear of prosecution forces each one, against his conscience, to conform. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
407:If your life at night is good, you think you have Everything; but, if in that quarter things go wrong, You will consider your best and truest interests Most hateful. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
408:Alas, how right the ancient saying is: We, who are old, are nothing else but noise And shape. Like mimicries of dreams we go, And have no wits, although we think us wise. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
409:Life is short; this being so, who would pursue great things and not bear with what is at hand? These are the ways of madmen and men of evil counsel, at least in my judgment. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
410:The brash unbridled tongue, the lawless folly of fools, will end in pain. But the life of wise content is blest with quietness, escapes the storm and keeps its house secure. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
411:The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that, and live that way, you are really a wise man. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
412:Oh, trebly blest the placid lot of those whose hearth foundations are in pure love laid, where husband's breast with tempered ardor glows, and wife, oft mother, is in heart a maid! ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
413:Let no one think of me that I am humble or weak or passive; let them understand I am of a different kind: dangerous to my enemies, loyal to my friends. To such a life glory belongs. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
414: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. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
415:Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday. Tragedy isn't getting something or failure to get it; it's losing something you already have. Waste not fresh tears over old griefs. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
416:If a man rejoice not in his drinking, he is mad; for in drinking it's possible ... to fondle breasts, and to caress well tended locks, and there is dancing withal, and oblivion of woe. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
417:Terrible is the force of the waves of sea, terrible is the rush of the river and the blasts of hot fire, and terrible are a thousand other things; but none is such a terrible evil as woman. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
418:It's folly that women measure their happiness with the pleasures of the bed, but they do. And when the pleasure cools or their man goes missing, all they once lived for turns dark and hateful. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
419:Old men's prayers for death are lying prayers, in which they abuse old age and long extent of life. But when death draws near, not one is willing to die, and age no longer is a burden to them. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
420:That mortal is a fool who, prospering, thinks his life has any strong foundation; since our fortune's course of action is the reeling way a madman takes, and no one person is ever happy all the time. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
421:I care for riches, to make gifts To friends, or lead a sick man back to health With ease and plenty. Else small aid is wealth For daily gladness; once a man be done With hunger, rich and poor are all as one. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
422:Our lives ... are but a little while, so let them run as sweetly as you can, and give no thought to grief from day to day. For time is not concerned to keep our hopes, but hurries on its business, and is gone. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
423:In my opinion, the unjust man whose tongue is full of glozing rhetoric, merits the heaviest punishment; vaunting that he can with his tongue gloze over injustice, he dares to act wickedly, yet he is not over-wise. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
424:There is nothing more hostile to a city that a tyrant, under whom in the first and chiefest place, there are not laws in common, but one man, keeping the law himself to himself, has the sway, and this is no longer equal. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
425:When roused to rage the maddening populace storms, their fury, like a rolling flame, bursts forth unquenchable; but give its violence ways, it spends itself, and as its force abates, learns to obey and yields it to your will. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
426:Happy the man whose lot it is to know The secrets of the earth. He hastens not To work his fellows hurt by unjust deeds, But with rapt admiration contemplates Immortal Nature's ageless harmony, And how and when the order came to be. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
427:To have found you is a dear happiness; and to be Apollo's son is beyond all my hopes; but there is something I want to say to you alone. Come; this is a private matter between us two - anything you tell me shall be as secret as the grave. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
428:Human misery must somewhere have a stop; there is no wind that always blows a storm; great good fortune comes to failure in the end. All is change; all yields its place and goes; to persevere, trusting in what hopes he has, is courage in a man. The coward despairs. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
429:Time will explain it all. Waste no tears over the griefs of yesterday. One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives. Love is all we have, the only way that each can help the other. Whoso neglects learning in his youth, loses the past and is dead for the future. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
430:Lady, the sun's light to our eyes is dear, And fair the tranquil reaches of the sea, And flowery earth in May, and bounding waters; And so right many fair things I might praise; Yet nothing is so radiant and so fair As for souls childless, with desire sore-smitten, To see the light of babes about the house. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
431:He is life's liberating force. He is release of limbs and communion through dance. He is laughter, and music in flutes. He is repose from all cares - he is sleep! When his blood bursts from the grape and flows across tables laid in his honor to fuse with our blood, he gently, gradually, wraps us in shadows of ivy-cool sleep. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
432:Knowledge is not wisdom: cleverness is not, not without awareness of our death, not without recalling just how brief our flare is. He who overreaches will, in his overreaching, lose what he possesses, betray what he has now. That which is beyond us, which is greater than the human, the unattainably great, is for the mad, or for those who listen to the mad, and then believe them. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
433: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. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
434:Mankind . . . possesses two supreme blessings. First of these is the goddess Demeter, or Earth whichever name you choose to call her by. It was she who gave to man his nourishment of grain. But after her there came the son of Semele, who matched her present by inventing liquid wine as his gift to man. For filled with that good gift, suffering mankind forgets its grief; from it comes sleep; with it oblivion of the troubles of the day. There is no other medicine for misery. ~ euripedes, @wisdomtrove
