Quotes from The Oresteia by Aeschylus

CHORUS: No man can go through Life
and reach the end unharmed.
Aye, trouble is now
and trouble still to come.
- The Libation Bearers

CHORUS: But a man's life blood
is dark and mortal.
Once it wets the earth,
what song can bring it back?
Not even the master-healer
who brought the dead to life-
Zeus stopped the man before he did more harm.
- Agamemnon
