Live Free or Die

Euripides, fragment 245, lines 8-9 (tr. Christopher Collard and Martin Cropp):
Just one thing I urge upon you: never consent to live and go into slavery when you can choose to die as befits a free man.

ἓν δέ σοι μόνον προφωνῶ· μὴ ᾿πὶ δουλείαν ποτὲ
ζῶν ἑκὼν ἔλθῃς παρόν σοι κατθανεῖν ἐλευθέρως.
