 O seed, seed of the person to me most dear, you have just now come,  you have come, and have found and seen her whom your heart desired! Orestes
I am with you; but keep silence and wait. Electra
What do you mean? Orestes
It is better to be silent so that no one inside may hear. Electra
No, by ever-virgin Artemis,  I will never think it right to tremble before eternally house-bound women, that useless burden on the ground! Orestes
Yes, but remember that Ares dwells in women, too. You know this well by experience, I believe. Electra
 oh, no! ah, me! You have reminded me of my sorrow, one which by its nature cannot be veiled,  cannot be done away with, cannot be forgotten! Orestes
I know this, too; but when occasion prompts, we must recall those crimes.
