Aeschylus Top 10 Quotes

Time brings all things to pass.
Aeschylus (Prometheus Bound)
The wisest of the wise may err.
He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.
Aeschylus (The Oresteia - Agamemnon, 458 BCE)
I know how men in exile feed on dreams.
Aeschylus (The Oresteia - Agamemnon, 458 BCE)
It is not the oath that makes us believe the man, but the man the oath.
His resolve is not to seem, but to be, the best.
Aeschylus (Seven against Thebes, 467 BCE)
Death is easier than a wretched life; and better never to have born than to live and fare badly.
O Death the Healer, scorn thou not, I pray,
To come to me; of cureless ills thou art
The one physician. Pain lays not its touch
Upon a corpse.
Wisdom comes alone through suffering.
Aeschylus (The Oresteia - Agamemnon, 458 BCE)
Learning is ever in the freshness of its youth, even for the old.
Aeschylus (The Oresteia - Agamemnon, 458 BCE)
