If a man obeys the gods
they’re quick to hear his prayers.
The Iliad, Book 1, lines 256-257. When Athena asks Achilles not to attack Agamemnon, that one day glittering gifts will lie before him three times over to pay for Agamemnon’s offense, Achilles is quick to respond. He says he is ready to submit to her command and surrender his will to the divine will.
