It is noted that Boris Johnson is a lover of Greek culture and even speaks ancient Greek.

It is recalled that a sample of his knowledge of Greek was demonstrated at the United Nations General Assembly on climate change in April 2021, when he recited Sophocles.

“Sophocles said:” πολλὰ τὰ δεινὰ κοὐδὲν ἀνθρώπου δεινότερον πέλει. ” The person “suffers” and the word “fearful” is not the correct translation of the word “suffering”. Sophocles meant that the human species is beautiful. It’s scary, but admirable,” he said.

The phrase used by Boris Johnson comes from Sophocles’ Antigone and in modern Greek it is translated as “many are terrible things, but nothing is more terrible than man”, wanting to point out that all people are capable of good, but as much as evil.
