Sappho Quotes

yet if you had a desire for good or beautiful things
and your tongue were not concocting some evil to say
shame would not hold down your eyes
but rather you would speak about what is just

their heart grew cold
they let their wings down

In fact she herself once blamed me

because I prayed
this word:
I want.

Eros, again now, the loosener of limbs troubles me,

Bittersweet, sly, uncontrollable creature….

]sing to us
the one with violets in her lap
]goes astray

...gracious your form and your eyes as honey : desire is poured upon your lovely face Aphrodite has honored you exceedingly...

Minä rakastan aurinkoa, kauneutta, se on minun osani täällä

(sinä olet)
kaikista tähdistä

Amor es gozar mucho y llorar luego mucho más.

There is no place for grief in a house which serves the Muse.
