Read the passage from The Odyssey - Teiresias. But anguish lies ahead; the god who thunders on the land prepares it, not to be shaken from your track, implacable, in rancor for the son whose eye you blinded. One narrow strait may take you through his blows: denial of yourself, restraint of shipmates. When you make landfall on Thrinakia first and quit the violet sea, dark on the land you'll find the grazing herds of Helios by whom all things are seen, all speech is known. Avoid those kine, hold fast to your intent, and hard seafaring brings you all to Ithaka. But if you raid the beeves, I see destruction for ship and crew. Which theme is reflected in the passage? It is important to take responsibility for your actions. Long-term goals are more important than short-term gains. The true measure of wisdom is overcoming your pride. The advantage of travel is that it teaches you to value home.
