Quotes of the Day for 23 September 2001 – Euripides
The Greek tragic playwright Euripides was born at Attica on this day in 484 BC - although with what precision the date is known is questionable when different sources put the year at 480 or 485. I note that there are quite a few entries from him in the database, and I've only ever used one. So let's catch up with this prolific author today.
You will find an expanded profile, photo, additional biographical links, and all quotes from this author on the author's Notable Quotable page.
Who dares not speak his free thoughts is a slave.
A bad beginning makes a bad ending.
Love is all we have, the only way that each can help the other.
Man's best possession is a sympathetic wife.
The good and the wise lead quiet lives.
Youth is the best time to be rich; and the best time to be poor.
- All today's quotes are from Euripides, 484 - 406 BC
