Euripides quotes- 7 of
Better a serpent than a stepmother!
Let mortal man keep to his own
Mortality, and not expect too much.
'Twas but my tongue, 'twas not my soul that swore.
I love the old way best, the simple way
Of poison, where we too are strong as men.
Of all things upon earth that bleed and grow,
A herb most bruised is woman.
And men say
Our second thoughts are wiser every way.
For the weariest road that man may wend
Is forth fromn the home of his father.
