„Call no day happy 'til it is done; call no man happy til he is dead.“

—  Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, livro The Oak and the Calf

Solzhenitsyn here seems to be paraphrasing Sophocles who expresses similar ideas in Oedipus Rex. This is also a direct reference to Plutarch's line, "call no man fortunate until he is dead," from his "Parallel Lives".
