+posi ! what is the name of the play with the quote where the guy is talking to his dad, and hes saying how the tree branches bend and the ones that stand straight will break... and like its supposed to tie in with being flexible about things and not being stubborn... i dont remember the author or the title. it should be online somewhere, its pretty short. i dont need the link or anything, just either the title or the author is fine. i'm pretty sure the author was just one name.

if you give me stupid, bullshit responses you will be negged.

i know im being really vague. i just cant remember at all. i know it was just one name (the author) and its like, a classic cause my teacher told me i could find it online.

so.... know any classic writers that only have one name? besides Homer.
it started with an S

I'm really desperate cause i need to use that quote for my essay for Bennington, but i don't know what the play is... ugrrrghh

yay i found it! I was looking for Antigone by Sophocles

"For any man even if he’s wise, there’s nothing shameful in learning many things, staying You notice how in winter floods the trees which bend before the storm preserve their twigs. The ones who stand against it are destroyed, root and branch."
