Violence

The blade itself incites to deeds of violence.



Medeia And Talos - Sybil Tawse


Athena

Wherever a great heart throbs and rages, wherever a liberating thought flares up, there Athena is present, summoned rather by heroic readiness than by humble supplication. From her own lips we hear that she is attracted by prowess, not by good will or devotion to her person. The men who can most surely rely upon her offer her no unusual reverence, and it is unthinkable that her assistance should ever be motivated by the exemplary obedience of her protégés.

Disenchantment - Season 1

This was a bit weak, but it shows potential, especially the last two episodes. It's not as good as season one of Futurama, but better than, say, season one of the Simpsons. I'm not going to wholeheartedly recommend this, but I'll definitely watch season two.



Coltsfoot

The sun shines.
The coltsfoot flowers along the railway banks
Shine flat like coin which Zeus in thanks
Showers on our lines.
