Aeschylus: On Gaining Wisdom

“He who learns must suffer;
and even in our sleep
pain that cannot forget
falls drop by drop upon the heart,
and in our own despair,
against our will,
comes wisdom
by the awful grace of God.”
― Aeschylus

Considered the father of Tragedy

PS: He also said:
“Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.”
