Sappho, 31 − Longinus on Sublimity
[ID: For when I look at you for a moment, then it is no longer possible for me to speak; my tongue has snapped, at once a subtle fire has stolen beneath my flesh, I see nothing with my eyes, my ears hum, sweat pours from me, a trembling seizes me all over, I am greener than grass, and it seems to me that I am little short of dying. But all can be endured, since... even a poor man...]

Μεγαλώσαμε πια! Δεν έχει κανένα νόημα να κάνεις παρέα με ανθρώπους από τους οποίους δεν έχεις τίποτα να πάρεις. Εγώ, χρειάζομαι ανθρώπους που να μου αρέσει να τους ακούω να συζητάνε. Να συζητάνε με πάθος για την ποίηση, για πολιτική, για λογοτεχνία, για κινηματογράφο, για θέατρο. Και να γεμίζει το σπίτι φωνές, γνώση, πάθος και απόψεις. Ανθρώπους ξύπνιους και καλλιεργημένους, που ξέρω ότι μου λένε την αλήθεια, ακριβώς γιατί δεν έχουν κανένα λόγο να μου πουν ψέματα. Κι εγώ την αλήθεια την λατρεύω. Όποιος απομακρύνεται από την αλήθεια, οδεύει προς τον θάνατο. Τον όποιο θάνατο...

Aeschylus' The Suppliants in Syracuse's Greek Theatre, translated in Sicilian (and partly in the original Greek) and with choruses sung and danced very effectively. An actualization dating 2018, revolving around the themes of migration as an escape from totalitarian regimes or from coercion in the broader sense. Tits are fake tho
