Creon
[1317] Ah this guilt can never be fastened onto any other mortal so as to remove my own! It was I, yes, I, who killed you, I the wretch. [1320] I admit the truth. Lead me away, my servants, lead me from here with all haste, who am no more than a dead man!

Chorus
[1325] The course you recommend is to your gain, if there can be gain amidst evil. What is briefest is best, when trouble lies at your feet.
