Bravery & Persistance
By Christopher Hudgens
“Be strong, saith my heart; I am a soldier; I have seen worse sights than this.” ― Homer, The Odyssey
“The blade itself incites to deeds of violence.”
"[it is] not right to think good men, without a reason, bad or bad men good." - Oedipus
Oedipus takes Jocasta's broaches off her dead body and pierces his eyes, blinding himself. Now, he can no longer physically see, as the oracle had predicted.

Oedipus curses the road that forked in three, and asks the elders to hide him out of sight of the gods, or to kill him or throw him into the sea so that nobody can see him and he will not be ashamed of who he is.
