Anyway, today I was reading Charles Kingsley's collection (translation?) of Heroes, or Greek Fairy Tales for My Children (a free ebook from Project Gutenberg). And look what I found on page 139, when Pallas Athené, also known as Athena, the goddess of war, says to Perseus -- you know, that guy who killed Medusa:
- "Perseus, you have played the man, and see, you have your reward. Know now that the Gods are just, and help him who helps himself."
Uh-huh. You read that right. The line is from a Greek MYTH.
