“My life and my fate are things of horror.
For this … my beauty is to blame.
If only I were as hideous as a statue
from which the paint was wiped away,
The people would not have been subjected to such suffering.”

(from Helen, a tragedy by the classical Greek playwright Euripides, who lived from 485 to 406 BC)
