Quote #10

Agave:
"But gods should not repeat the passions of mere men." (315)

Yeah, maybe, but this doesn't seem to be true at all with the gods of the ancient Greeks. They act pretty much exactly like people. They betray each other, fight amongst themselves, and fall in love. The only real difference is that they have a ton of power. It's really no wonder the Greeks were busy trying to be humble all the time. With the world of the divine in such tumult all the time, you had to be really careful not to anger any divine entity.
