Top 10 Best Sophocles Quotes

#10

 

Men of ill judgement oft ignore the good
That lies within their hands, till they have lost it.
 
#9
 

The time of life is short, and once a mortal is hidden beneath the earth he lies there for all time.

 
#8
 

No man loves life like him that's growing old.

 
#7
 

All a man's affairs become diseased when he wishes to cure evils by evils.

 
#6
 

Nothing so evil as money ever grew to be current among men. This lays cities low, this drives men from their homes, this trains and warps honest souls till they set themselves to works of shame.

 
#5
 

The greatest griefs are those we cause ourselves.

 
#4
 

Love, unconquerable,
Waster of rich men, keeper
Of warm lights and all-night vigil
In the soft face of a girl:
Sea-wanderer, forest-visitor!
Even the pure immortals cannot escape you,
And mortal man, in his one day's dusk,
Trembles before your glory.

 
#3
 

Numberless are the world's wonders, but none
More wonderful than man.

 
#2
 

I am the child of Fortune, the giver of good, and I shall not be shamed. She is my mother; my sisters are the Seasons; my rising and my falling match with theirs.

 
#1
 

Time eases all things.
