(525-456 B.C), Greek tragic poet
It is easy when we are in prosperity to give advice to the afflicted.
To be free from evil thoughts is God's best gift.
Justice shines in smoky cottages, and honors the pious. Leaving with averted eyes the gorgeous glare obtained by polluted hands, she is wont to draw nigh to holiness, not reverencing wealth when falsely stamped with praise, and assigning to each deed its righteous doom.
Obedience to truth known, is the king's highway to that which is still beyond us.
Polished brass is the mirror of the body and wine of the mind.
