Quote of the Week: Sophocles

“One must learn by doing the thing; for though you think you know it you have no certainty, until you try.”

– Sophocles

Sophocles is one of three ancient Greek tragedians whose plays have survived. Sophocles wrote 123 plays during the course of his life, but only seven have survived in a complete form: Ajax, Antigone, Trachinian Women, Oedipus the King, Electra, Philoctetes and Oedipus at Colonus.
