You were a stranger to sorrow therefore Fate has cursed you.
And I do not fear to say that those who are held Wise among men and who search the reasons of things Are those who bring the most sorrow on themselves.
I have pondered on the causes of a life's shipwreck. I think that our lives are worse than the mind's quality would warrant. There are many who know virtue. We know the good, we apprehend it clearly. But we can't bring it to achievement.
The gods visit the sins of the fathers upon the children.
There is one thing alone that stands the brunt of life throughout its course; a quiet conscience.
Your very silence shows you agree.
