Rui, When we wake up one day, this will have just been a bad dream


In the Iliad, Cassandra, for rejecting Apollo, received the gift of seeing the future, which was a punishment because no one took her prophecies seriously:

Cassandra:

Why vainly dost thou torture me, Apollo?
Who, when thou lent me power of prophecy,
Gav’st to my words no weight! Unto the winds
Fly all my prophecies, gaining with men
Credence accorded dreams and idle tales.

My fettered heart, my loss of memory
Whom will they aid? To whom is profitable
This alien spirit, speaking through my lips,
And all my thoughts, ruled over by a guest
Grievous, unbearable? In vain do I
Resist! I suffer violence; I rule
Myself no longer; I am not my own.

-  Jan Kochanowski
