Where beneath the ivy shade,
  In the dew-besprinkled glade,
    Many a love-lorn nightingale,
      Warbles sweet her plaintive tale.
      - Oedipus Coloneus,
        (translated by Thomas Francklin)
        [Nightingales]

For to cast away a virtuous friend, I call as bad as to cast away one's life, which one loves best.
      - Oedipus Tyrannis,
        (Oxford translation, revised by Buckley)
        [Friends]

For whoever knows how to return a kindness he has received must be a friend above all price.
      - Philoctetes,
        (Oxford translation, revised by Buckley)
