 Courage, my daughter, courage; Zeus in the sky  is still mighty, and he sees and rules all. Leave your oversharp anger to him; be neither excessively hostile to those you hate, nor forgetful of them, since Time is a god who brings ease.  Neither the son of Agamemnon, who dwells by Crisa's cattle-feeding shore nor the god who reigns beside Acheron is unmindful of you. Electra
 But the best part of life has passed away leaving me in hopelessness, and I have no strength left. I waste away without children and have no loving husband to champion me, but like some despised foreign slave,  I serve in the halls of my father, wrapped in shabby garments and standing to eat scanty meals.
