Цитаты Леонид I


„Come and get them!“

— Leonidas I
In response to a demand from Xerxes I of Persia that the Spartan army lay down their arms, at the Battle of Thermopylae, as recorded in Plutarch Apophthegmata Laconica, 225c.11 of the Moralia. Variant: "Come and take them."

„Marry a good man, and bear good children.“

— Leonidas I
In response to his wife's question of what she should do if he died in battle, as he left for Thermopylae; as quoted in the [http://penelope.uchicago.edu/Thayer/E/Roman/Texts/Plutarch/Moralia/Sayings_of_Spartan_Women*.html "Sayings of the Spartan Women"] in the Moralia Variant translation: Marry a good man, and have good children.

„The words of this famous epigram on the Greek monument at the site of the Battle of Thermopylae, written by Simonides of Ceos, have sometimes been presented as if they were literally words of Leonidas; some translations follow:“

— Leonidas I
Go, stranger, and to Lacedaemon tell That here, obeying her behests, we fell. As translated by George Rawlinson Go tell the Spartans, thou who passest by, That here, obedient to their laws, we lie. As translated by William Lisle Bowles Tell the Spartans, stranger passing by, that here obedient to their laws we lie. As translated by Steven Pressfield. Unsourced variants: Go, stranger, and to Sparta tell, That faithful to her laws we fell. Tell Sparta, stranger passing by, That faithful to her laws we lie. For a discussion of the epigram and more of its numerous translations, see the Wikipedia article: Battle of Thermoplyae.
