But you now must withdraw, lest Hera notice anything. These things you have asked for will be my concern until I accomplish them. Come now, I shall nod by accent to you so that you may be convinced. For this from me is the greatest pledge among immortals; for no promise of mine is revocable or false or unfulfilled to which I give assent with the nod of my head.” (Iliad 1.518-28)

Zeus & Ganymede o “Indeed, Zeus in his wisdom seized and carried off fairhaired Ganymede because of his beauty so that he might be in the company of the gods and pour wine for them in the house of Zeus… But a lasting sorrow gripped the heart of Tros (i.e. G’s father) for he had no idea where the divine whirlwind had taken his dear son. Indeed, he mourned for him unceasingly each and every day; and Zeus took pity on the father and gave him, as recompense for his son, brisk- trotting horses, the kind which carry the gods. ( Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite, 202- 212)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
