Herodotus was an illustrious Greek historian. He was a contemporary of Euripides, Thucydides and Socrates. He was born in Halicarnassus, in the Persian Empire and lived in the fifth century. He is considered as the ‘Father of History’. He treated historical subjects as a method of investigation by gathering material critically and systematically. He then arranged them in historiographic narrative. He broke away from Homeric tradition and is considered to be the first one to do so. The only work that Herodotus is known to have produced is ‘The Histories’ which is a record of his ‘inquiry’ on the origins of ‘Greco-Persian Wars’. His thoughts, stories, opinions, views are sometimes considered whimsical and at times imprecise, however, he always claimed that he reported only what he was told. Here is a corpus of quotable quotes and sayings by Herodotus on bitterest, miseries, control, knowledge, ignorance, peace, friendship, control, truth, believe, risks, people, goal, fear, soul, destiny, evil, freedom etc which have been extracted from his work, writings, thoughts, stories and life.
