What We Have in Common

Euripides, fragment 733 (tr. Christopher Collard and Martin Cropp):
Death waits for every man; that is our common lot, and all of us suffer it in common. What is fated is greater than what is not fated.

τοῖς πᾶσιν ἀνθρώποισι κατθανεῖν μένει,
κοινὸν δ᾿ ἔχοντες αὐτὸ κοινὰ πάσχομεν
πάντες· τὸ γὰρ χρεὼν μεῖζον ἢ τὸ μὴ χρεών.
