Upton Sinclair, ed. (1878–1968).
The Cry for Justice: An Anthology of the Literature of Social Protest.  1915.
 
Concerning Wealth. VII.
(From the “Medea” of Euripides)

By Euripides

(Athenian tragic poet, 480 or 485–406 B.C.; the most modern of ancient writers. Translation by John Addington Symonds)
 
SPEAK not so hastily: the gods themselves
By gifts are swayed, as fame relates; and gold
Hath a far greater influence o’er the souls
Of mortals than the most persuasive words.
