Quotes by Sophocles

A short saying oft contains much wisdom.

One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love.

The keenest sorrow is to recognize ourselves as the sole cause of all our adversities.

What you cannot enforce, do not command.

It is not righteousness to outrage
A brave man dead, not even though you hate him.

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

For God hates utterly
The bray of bragging tongues.

Money: There's nothing in the world so demoralizing as money.

Nobody likes the man who brings bad news.
