But you chose life—it was my choice to die.
Some people may approve of how you think
others will believe my judgment’s good
But my nature is to love. I cannot hate.
Take me and kill me—what more do you want?
I know that tyrants have, amongst some other benefits, that of doing and saying exactly what they please.
Don’t fear for me. Set your own fate in order.
Words from Antigone to her sister Ismene – SOPHOCLES
