Euripides

Euripides is a great tragedian. His work is not far from comedy.


Euripides
Euripedes



God, those old men!
How they pray for death! How heavy
They find this life in the slow drag of days!
And yet, when Death comes near them,
You will not find one who will rise and walk with
    Him, not one whose years are still a burden
    to him.
Euripedes, Alcestis [438 B.C.]

My tongue swore, but my mind was still
unpledged.
Euripedes, Hyppolytus [428 B.C.]
