Sophocles

Post  martha hildreth on Wed Jan 30, 2013 9:13 pm

Sophocles was the one who said, “if you were to offer a thirsty mad all wisdom, you wouldn’t please him more than if you gave him a drink.” For me this signifies the importance of physical belongings to men. Even if what you offer to a person is bigger than his desire he wont stop until he gets what he wants. Sophocles was born in 495 B.C., he was born about a mile away from Athens; the great city of the philosophers; Sophocles was a playwright, he was best known for Oedipus, and he proved central to feud and the history of psychoanalysis. He was sent to Athens for education thanks to his dad that was a nobleman. He died in 406 B.C. in the city-state of Athens.


"If you were to offer a thirsty man all wisdom, you would not please him more than if you gave him a drink" - Sophocles
