Quotes by Sophocles

No lie ever reaches old age.

You should not consider a man's age but his acts.

Old age and the passage of time teach all things.

Not even old age knows how to love death.

Time alone reveals the just man but you might discern a bad man in a single day.

Whoever thinks that he alone has speech, or possesses speech or mind above others, when unfolded such men are seen to be empty.

The rewards of virtue alone abide secure.

Best to live lightly, unthinkingly.

Not to be born is, past all prizing, best.
