Xenophon, Apology 1.27

“What is this? Are you weeping? Don’t you know that from the moment I was born death was already assigned to me by nature?”


Τὶ τοῦτο; ἤ ἄρτι δακρύετε; οὐ γὰρ πάλαι ἴστε ὅτι ὅτουπερ ἐγενόμην κατεψηφισμένος ἦν μου ὑπὸ τῆς φυσέως ὁ θάνατος


This, from Xenophon’s popular dialogue, Socrates Superstar.
