Il cuore di nerezza...

It shall never be enough.

Και τώρα, δεδομένου ότι κοίταξε και εβλέίδε ολόκληρο το που καλύφθηκε με τα σκάφη του στόλου του, και όλη η ακτή και κάθε πεδιάδα για Abydos όσο το δυνατόν πληρέστερο των ατόμων, δέχτηκε συγχαρητήρια στην καλή τύχη του αλλά μετά από λίγο ενώ έκλαψε.

Κατόπv, ο θείος του βασιλιά (το ίδιο πράγμα που στον πρώτο τόσο ελεύθερα το μυαλό του στο βασιλιά, και ενθαρρυνόμενος τον για να μην οδηγήσει το στρατό του ενάντια στην Ελλάδα,) όταν άκουσε ότι ήταν στα δάκρυα, πήγε σε τον, και εν λόγω:

"Πόσο διαφορετικός, πρόγονος, είναι τι εσύ τέχνη που κάνει τώρα, από αυτά που εσύ λίγο ενώ πριν! Κατόπιν didst συγχαίρετε και τώρα, εσύ o πιό ωεεπεστ."

"Ήρθε επάνω σε με,"απαντημένος αυτός, "ένας ξαφνικός οίκτος, όταν σκέφτηκα τη συντομία της ανθρώπινης ζωής, και θεωρημένος αυτός όλου αυτού του οικοδεσπότη, τόσο πολυάριθμος όπως είναι, όχι κάποιος θα είναι ζωντανός όταν περνιούνται εκατό έτη."

And now, as he looked and saw the whole Hellespont covered with the vessels of his fleet, and all the shore and every plain about Abydos as full as possible of men, Xerxes congratulated himself on his good fortune; but after a little while he wept.

Then Artabanus, the king's uncle (the same who at the first so freely spake his mind to the king, and advised him not to lead his army against Greece,) when he heard that Xerxes was in tears, went to him, and said:

"How different, sire, is what thou art now doing, from what thou didst a little while ago! Then thou didst congratulate thyself; and now, behold! thou weepest."

"There came upon me," replied he, "a sudden pity, when I thought of the shortness of man's life, and considered that of all this host, so numerous as it is, not one will be alive when a hundred years are gone by."


Ίσως θα πάω στην Ελλάδα.

Something is not right...

11/2/04 02:49 am - To be read at your own risk...

That was most exhausting...

I do believe, however, that the excitement of the moment may contribute to lessening that effect. Indeed...

I do believe so.

10/28/04 10:49 am - To my Death Eaters...

I would like to see you all...and soon.

There is something we must discuss...

There is no good. There is no evil. There is only power and those too weak to attain it...










¿Qué lado escogerás?

I am restless. For twenty-five years, I have been wandering, searching, seeking, scouring the deepest and most unfathomable depths. In my travels I have seen a great deal, learned much, deceived many, and perfected and intensified my powers to a terrifying magnitude.

For the past seven years, I have been working tirelessly, building my small network of devoted followers into an organization whose tendrils reach out across the four corners of the globe I have come to know so well.

But today, if just for today I can do no more. As great as my powers may be, I still must rest. I have not achieved complete omnipotence-yet...

And so today, I rest, watching, watching and waiting...
