This time I’d like to share a passage from Medea, a Greek play by Euripides.
‘Tis best men tread the equal way.
Aye, not with glory but with peace
May the long summers find me crowned;
For gentleness-her very sound
Is magic, and her usages.
All wholesome; but the fiercely great
Hath little music on his road,
And falleth, when the hand of God
Shall move, most deep and desolate.
The nurse (nurse of Medea and Jason’s children) reflected that she was very grateful to live a moderate life, as she believed that wealth and fortune only brought unhappiness towards men. It’s wisely true, but unfortunately greediness is often overshadow this wisdom from us.
