Top 10 Best Agamemnon Quotes

#10

 

Another rising of the sun
That rolls another year away,
Sees us through the portal dun
Dividing night and day.

--AESCHYLUS, Agamemnon

 
#9
 

But thus it is; All bides the destin'd Hour;
And Man, albeit with Justice at his side,
Fights in the dark against a secret Power
Not to be conquer'd -- and how pacified?

--AESCHYLUS, Agamemnon

 
#8
 

I well know that mirror of friendship, shadow of a shade.

--AESCHYLUS, Agamemnon

 
#7
 

Those transplendent Dynasties of Heav'n
That, as alternately they rise and fall,
Draw Warmth and Winter over mortal man.

--AESCHYLUS, Agamemnon

 
#6
 

Let loose the Fury who, though late
Retarded on the leash of Fate,
Once loos'd, after the Sinner springs;
Over Ocean's heights and hollows,
Into cave and forest follows,
Into fastest guarded town,
Close on the Sinner's heel insists,
And, turn or baffle as he lists,
Dogs him inexorably down.

--AESCHYLUS, Agamemnon

 
#5
 

The gods fail not to mark
Those who have killed many.
The black Furies stalking the man
Fortunate beyond all right
Wrench back again the set of his life
And drop him to darkness.

--AESCHYLUS, Agamemnon

 
#4
 

Wisdom comes through suffering.
Trouble, with its memories of pain,
Drips in our hearts as we try to sleep,
So men against their will
Learn to practice moderation.

--AESCHYLUS, Agamemnon

 
#3
 

Oh, never yet did Night --
Night of all Good the Mother, as men say,
Conceive a fairer issue than Today!

--AESCHYLUS, Agamemnon

 
#2
 

Call no man happy till he is dead.

--AESCHYLUS, Agamemnon

 
#1
 

When the black and mortal blood of man has fallen to the ground ... who then can sing spells to call it back again?

--AESCHYLUS, Agamemnon
