Phaidros : I have never noticed it; but I beseech you to tell me, Sokrates, do you believe this tale? Sokrates : The wise are doubtful, and I should not be singular if, like them, I too doubted.

I, when I meet my brothers in the sky, the open sky, my combat field, I fight and wrestle with such force that heaven's height resounds with our collisions and a blaze of fire struck from the hollow clouds leaps forth.
