Athens, at the time, was undoubtedly the most civilized society, but that never seemed to be the cause of any sort of bragging; it only opened up the potential for Athens to receive praise. For instance, Pericles states (in contrast to Sparta) on one occasion that “there is a difference, too, in [their] educational systems. The Spartans, from their earliest boyhood, are submitted to the most laborious training in courage; [the Athenians] pass our lives without all these restrictions, and yet are just as ready to face the same dangers as they are.” Pericles appears to be prideful about the treatment, education, and enforcement of Athenians (people and trainees) in terms of their military.

Dawn rises and with her, Helios. They spread their light across the dusty plains of my homelands. The once golden soil so blessed by the gods, now thick with the lifes blood of the foolish and unlucky. The withered field strewn with lifeless figures, becoming a sea. Blood red and merciless, it hungers to drag down who so ever steps foot in it’s entanglement of rusted bronze and decaying bodies.

The lovely news has Odysseus “Heart Racing” and it has him “filled with Joy” but quickly realising the significance of celebrating he stops himself.(13.285 & 286). “Ithaca…….

Many people rely on a sense of linear time, oftentimes looking at life as a timeline of early years, middle years, and then eventual death. To deal with this, many may make to-do lists and attempt to “manage time”. This sense of time is known as chronos, named after a Greek titan who was overthrown by his father and cast into Tartarus, a prison for titans, where he still ticks. One is always able to feel the effects of the ticking clock, and time may feel like a burden. Despite this linear understanding of time, the Greeks understood that life is not a rut, and thus developed a different sense of time known as kairos.
