"He won’t be gone long from the native land he loves,
not even if iron shackles bind your father down.
He’s plotting a way to journey home at last;
he’s never at a loss."

– Homer

The Odyssey, Book 1, lines 235-238. Athena instils hope in the young Telemachus about his missing father. She predicts that Odysseus won’t be gone long from his native land, foreshadowing his homecoming and return to Ithaca.
