Greek Tragedy Line of the Day: Antigone 88

I was rather struck by this line of Ismene in her conversation with her sister, Antigone:

Antigone has just told Ismene to let everyone in the city know that she’s going to disobey Kreon’s order and bury her brother.  Not a bad comeback on Ismene’s part!
