The great tragedies of history often fascinate people with
approaching horror. Paralyzed, they cannot make up their
minds to do anything but wait. So they wait, and one day
the Gorgon devours them. But I should like to convince
you … that strength of heart, intelligence, and courage
are enough to stop fate and sometimes reverse it.
