Today's quote:

The keenest sorrow is to recognize ourselves as the sole cause of all our adversities.


This has to be a bit qualified. A man doesn't cause himself to suffer illness in most cases or injury, but otherwise what Sophocles says here is probably the strongest reason there is that most people refuse to reflect upon their lives, their actions, their culpabilities. Suffering the recognition of what was has caused themselves harm is more than most people can bear.
