Euripides (c. 485-406 BCE)

“They say that one thing alone competes in life’s contest, the consciousness of a just and righteous mind within one, while time sooner or later reveals bad men, setting its mirror before them as before a young girl. May I never be seen in their number.”

  • From Euripides’ Hippolytus (approximately between lines 420-430), translated by James Morwood in Medea and Other Plays (Oxford University Press, 1997, 1998, 2008).
