Euripides speaks of the Maenads: head thrown I back, throat to the stars, “more like deer than human being.”

[3/10] the waves by virginia woolf"I see nothing. We may sink and settle on the waves. The sea will drum in my ears. The white petals will be darkened with sea water. They will float for a moment and then sink. Rolling over the waves will shoulder me under. Everything falls in a tremendous shower, dissolving me."
Jane Eyre (Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë).
The more solitary, the more friendless, the more unsustained I am, the more I will respect myself. I will keep the law given by God; sanctioned by man. I will hold to the principles received by me when I was sane, and not mad - as I am now. Laws and principles are not for the times when there is no temptation: they are for such moments as this, when body and soul rise in mutiny against their rigour; stringent are they; inviolate they shall be. If at my individual convenience I might break them, what would be their worth?

one mythology; roman
"Roman mythology is a mixture of general Greek and local myths about Rome and Roman gods and other Italian gods which are independent of Greek beliefs and tales. Gods and some heroes in Roman mythology often appear in Greek mythology with different names, sometimes a name of a Roman/Italian deity that largely corresponded to a particular Greek deity, sometimes with a variation of the Greek name as adapted into Latin."
