Prologue when Antigone and Ismene are talking about their dead brothers
"Our Brothers have died, but only one was buried, and given a warriors burial."pg 1069
"Well we can't do anything, because King Creon will have us killed for giving him a Burial."pg 1070
"Creon is not strong enough to stand in my way."pg 1070
Oedipus died, everyone hating him For what his own search brought to light, his own eyes ripped out by his own hand; and Jocasta died, his mother and wife at once: she twisted the cords that strangled her life." pg 107
"I should not want you, even if you asked to come. You have made your choice; and if I must die, I say that this crime is holy: I shall lie down with him in death, and I shall be as dear to him as he to me. "pg 1071
"Well, you don't have to come, since the laws of the gods mean nothing to you."pg 1071
"They Mean a great deal to me; but I have no strength To break laws that were made for the public good."pg 1071
"I am so afraid of you!"pg 1072
You need not be: You have your self to consider, after all.
"Go away Ismene: I shall be hating you soon, and the dead will too, for your words are hateful."pg 1072
"Go then, if you feel that you must. You are unwise, but a loyal friend indeed to those who love you."pg 1072
