Sophocles Quotes


“Success is dependent on effort.”

The Sophocles' quote says that success depends on effort.

Success is determined only by our failure and effort. The effort is essential to create a favourable and prosperous situation.

We must make an effort to achieve our goal or overcome a complication. There is no easy life in the world.

So our attitude must be firm, rational, realistic, and ready to suffer and strive for success.


“Without labor nothing prospers.”

“Always desire to learn something useful.”


“A human being is only breath and shadow.”


“Who seeks shall find.”


“A man growing old becomes a child again.”


“Profit is sweet, even if it comes from deception.”


“Trust dies but mistrust blossoms.”
