on inner aggression and war

” Let my spear lie idle for spiders

to weave their web around it.

May I live in peace in white old age.

May I sing with garlands

around my white head,

Having hung up my shield on the

pillared house of the goddess.

May I unfold the voice of books,

which the wise honor.”     – Euripides

Oh my god, I love this quote! How do you find these things? I’ve decided I must start a quote book. I never remember the good ones, and I doubt I’ll be reading Euripides any time soon.

Thank you for sharing his wisdom!
