Citáty Simónidés z Keu

„Painting is silent poetry, and poetry painting that speaks.“

— Simonides of Ceos
Quoted by Plutarch, De gloria Atheniensium [ 3.346f]. Variant translations: Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting with the gift of speech. Painting is silent poetry, poetry is eloquent painting. See also: Ut pictura poesis


„[Word-for-word translation]
O stranger, announce to the Lacadaemonians [Spartans] that here
We lie, to their words [or laws] obedient.“

— Simonides of Ceos
Go, tell the Spartans, stranger passing by That here, obedient to their laws, we lie. Epitaph on the Cenotaph of Thermopylae, recorded by Herodotus. Note: There is a long unsolved dispute around the interpretation of the word rhemasi, such as laws, words or orders. Variant translations: Go, tell the Spartans, thou who passest by, That here obedient to their laws we lie. Stranger, go tell the men of Lacedaemon That we, who lie here, did as we were ordered. Stranger, bring the message to the Spartans that here We remain, obedient to their orders. Oh foreigner, tell the Lacedaemonians That here we lie, obeying their words. Go, tell the Spartans, passerby, that here by Spartan law we lie.

„Not even the gods fight against necessity.“

— Simonides of Ceos
Quoted by Plato in the dialogue Protagoras, [ 345d] (Simonides Fr. 37.1.27 ff.). Variant translations: The gods do not fight against necessity. Not even the gods war against necessity. I praise and love all men who do no sin willingly; but with necessity even the gods do not contend.
