Sophocles (c. 496-406/405 BCE)
“Time is watching, watching over us always,
bringing down the lives of some,
raising others the next day
into the light again.”
- From Sophocles’ play, Oedipus at Colonus (approximately line 1450), translated by Robert Fagles in Three Theban Plays: Antigone; Oedipus the King; Oedipus at Colonus (Penguin Classics, 1982, 1984, 2018).
