- Lord Zeus, I was a sinner. I have never tried to deny it. But I didn't sin every day! Why then do you punish me every day?
- Pelias: Well?
- Priest: Zeus, king of the gods of the Greeks, brighten the ashes that I may read the future. I see... a great tree at the end of the world. And in its branches there hang the skull and skin of a ram. They gleam and shine for it is a prize of the gods, a Golden Fleece.
