Sappho

Experience shows us

Wealth unchaperoned
by Virtue is never
an innocuous neighbor


-----------------------

We know this much

Death is an evil;
we have the gods'
word for it; they too
would die if death
were a good thing

~ Sappho Translation by Mary Barnard





"I have no complaint. Prosperity that the golden Muses gave me was no delusion:
dead, I won't be forgotten."
