Destiny waits alike for the free man as well as for him enslaved by another's might.
Aeschylus quotes
Of all the gods, Death only craves not gifts:
Nor sacrifice, nor yet drink-offering poured
Avails; no altars hath he, nor is soothed
By hymns of praise. From him alone of all
The powers of heaven Persuasion holds aloof.

To come to me: of cureless ills thou art
The one physician. Pain lays not its touch
Upon a corpse.
