so says Sophocles

A distillation of passage from Plato’s Republic linked to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. Sophocles was a Greek playwright and here’s a quote from his play “Antigone”: 

“Many are the wonders of the world but none is more wonderful than man.” — Sophocles



this gift of old age

when strength of passions relax,

free to be at peace…

but elderly who complain,

were they happier in youth?
