To reach the limits of ourselves, to reach beyond ourselves,
To let go the means, to wake.“

„Let every man in mankind's frailty
Consider his last day; and let none
Presume on his good fortune until he find
Life, at his death, a memory without pain.“

—  Sophocles ancient Greek tragedian -496 - -406 a.C.
Variant: Look upon him, O my Thebans, on your king, the child of fame! This mighty man, this Œdipus the lore far-famed could guess, And envy from each Theban won, so great his lordliness— Lo to what a surge of sorrow and confusion hath he come! Let us call no mortal happy till our eyes have seen the doom And the death-day come upon him—till, unharassed by mischance, He pass the bound of mortal life, the goal of ordinance. [ Tr. E. D. A. Morshead http://books.google.com/books?id=i7wXAAAAYAAJ (1885)] Variant: People of Thebes, my countrymen, look on Oedipus. He solved the famous riddle, with his brilliance, he rose to power, a man beyond all power. Who could behold his greatness without envy? Now what a black sea of terror has overwhelmed him. Now as we keep our watch and wait the final day, count no man happy till he dies, free of pain at last. [quoted by Thomas Cahill in Sailing the Wine-Dark Sea] Line 1529, Choragos.
