"Oh my child, my child,
So many sorrows...
How does evil grow?
Where is it born?
Or is it made, not born?
Can a good man
impart a sense of honor,
tenderness, compassion
to his children?"

Hecuba, Hecuba scene 36
"Justice cries for Justice
Hatred calls up hate
Murder must pay for murder
And death must follow sin"

Electra, Electra scene 58
"A common slave, a woman
So easy to destroy.
Poor men and women...
Human Happiness...
A shadow can destroy us.
When the bad times come
One dab from a wet sponge
Wipes it all out.
Pity that, not me."

Cassandra, Agamemnon scene 48
