Greek Tattoo

Recommended Posts

Guest nickloeuf

Hey guys! 

 

I need your help! 

 

I am gettiing tattooed next week and a part of my tattoo will be a GREEK quote/saying but I can't find one that I truely like because I DON'T SPEAK GREEK AT ALL!

 

I would like to see if you guys have any ideas of some Greek Quotes/saying (in greek characters of course)!!!

 

It could be about love, hope, faith, or even any kind of SMALL quotes, I just need inspiration and diffrent ideas so this way I can pick up one quote that fits the reason why i'm getting tattooed!!

 

Thank you so much, 

 

have a nice day

Some suggestions:

 

ἓν οἶδα ὅτι οὐδὲν οἶδα

Loosely translates to "I know that I know nothing", or more literally: I know one thing; that I know nothing". Attributed to Socrates, even though Socrates never says these exact words in any of Plato's works.

 

Δεν ελπίζω τίποτα. Δε φοβἀμαι τίποτα. Είμαι λέφτερος.

This is Niko Kazantzakis' epitaph. It says: "I hope for nothing. I fear nothing. I am free."

 

ἄνθρωπος μέτρον

This is attributed to Protagoras. It means that "man is the measure (of all things)" 

 

Ἀνδρῶν γὰρ ἐπιφανῶν πᾶσα γῆ τάφος

Thucydides attributes this to a speech of Pericles to the Athenians during the Peloponessean war. It losely translates as "Heroes have the whole earth is their tomb"

 

I hope this will get you started  :)
