Inspired by Cody's recent reading of Hesiod, from the Theogony:

Μουσάων Ἑλικωνιάδων ἀρχώμεθ᾽ ἀείδειν,

αἵ θ᾽ Ἑλικῶνος ἔχουσιν ὄρος μέγα τε ζάθεόν τε

καί τε περὶ κρήνην ἰοειδέα πόσσ᾽ ἁπαλοῖσιν

ὀρχεῦνται καὶ βωμὸν ἐρισθενέος Κρονίωνος·

καί τε λοεσσάμεναι τέρενα χρόα Περμησσοῖο                                                                  

ἢ Ἵππου κρήνης ἢ Ὀλμειοῦ ζαθέοιο

ἀκροτάτῳ Ἑλικῶνι χοροὺς ἐνεποιήσαντο

καλούς, ἱμερόεντας· ἐπερρώσαντο δὲ ποσσίν.

...

Αἵ νύ ποθ᾽ Ἡσίοδον καλὴν ἐδίδαξαν ἀοιδήν,

ἄρνας ποιμαίνονθ᾽ Ἑλικῶνος ὕπο ζαθέοιο.

Τόνδε δέ με πρώτιστα θεαὶ πρὸς μῦθον ἔειπον,

Μοῦσαι Ὀλυμπιάδες, κοῦραι Διὸς αἰγιόχοιο·                                                                   

    «Ποιμένες ἄγραυλοι, κάκ᾽ ἐλέγχεα, γαστέρες οἶον,

ἴδμεν ψεύδεα πολλὰ λέγειν ἐτύμοισιν ὁμοῖα,

ἴδμεν δ᾽, εὖτ᾽ ἐθέλωμεν, ἀληθέα γηρύσασθαι.»

Manly Character

A discussion about what it means to be manly on the inside. We can participate in all the manly activities we desire and still be a coward. Men are involved in a variety of careers and hobbies that differ greatly, but we can all still be great men.See More
