Herodotus Quotes and Quotations


Death is a delightful hiding-place for weary men.
The Persians are very fond of wine ... It is also their general practice to deliberate upon affairs of weight when they are drunk; and then in the morning, when they are sober, the decision to which they came the night before is put before them by the master of the house in which it was made; and if it is then approved they act on it; if not, they set it aside. Sometimes, however, they are sober at their first deliberations, but in this case they always reconsider the matter under the influence of wine.
Very few things happen at the right time, and the rest do not happen at all; the conscientious historian will correct these defects.
This is the worst pain a man can suffer: to have insight into much and power over nothing.
