Quotations

We are the faithful ministers Of Persia's absent sons, That marched away to Hellas; Their golden mansions, Rich with all wealth and splendour, Are in our trust and care, For the great king, King Xerxes, Darius' son and heir, Chose us as wise men well in years The realm for him to hold;

The Persians bu Aeschylus
