Select ALL that apply.


Creon: Only while she voyages true on her course can we establish friendships, truer than blood itself. Such are my standards. They make our city great. (212-213)


Antigone: I won't insist, no, even if you should have a change of heart, I'd never welcome you in the labor, not with me. So, do as you like, whatever suits you best-- (81-84)


Antigone: I have longer to please the dead than please the living here: in the kingdom down below I'll lie forever. Do as you like, dishonor the laws the gods hold in honor. (88-92)


Creon: My countrymen, the ship of state is safe. The gods who rocked her, after a long, merciless pounding in the storm, have righted her once more. (180-182)


Creon: Never at my hands will the traitor be honored above the patriot. But whoever proves his loyalty to the state: I'll prize that man in death as well as life. (232-235)
