The Sybil Quotes in Le fatiche di Ercole (1958)
The Sybil Quotes:
Ercole: I can't stand being superior. Let me experience the real things, love or hate.
The Sybil: Those are mortal states, Hercules.
Ercole: If it's my immortality making me unhappy, then I'll do without it.
The Sybil: That's dangerous, Hercules. Don't you know how foolish you'd be to renounce it? To be born a man and to see everything die is not to be immortal. Stay as you are. Be a god. Don't exchange immortality for fear, pain, and sorrow.
The Sybil: As the worm eats the fruit that matures, as men stalk their prey, he will come here for you. When you see the man, he will wear one sandal. Wait no longer! That man would slay you.
The Sybil: Oh, father. How can you take stock in these oracles? And this one isn't even pretty.
Iphitus, Son of Pelias: Destiny knows about all men, and when you're time comes, you two will know!
The Sybil: You witch! Get away, you hear?
Iphitus, Son of Pelias: They will speak no more. When someone angers the gods, they finish.
Ercole: Why did Iphitus have to die? Answer me, Sybil. I cannot understand. I'm greatly confused. A man I could crush with one hand gives me an order. A woman humiliates me.
The Sybil: It is not you who is to blame, Hercules. Iphitus died simply because he was not meant to be king of Iolcos. Now the gods assign a new labor to you. They want you to go out and chance your fate against the Cretan Bull.
Ercole: Enough. I'm tired of doing all of these senseless things for the gods. When will I be worthy in the eyes of the gods?
The Sybil: The hour of your fate is nearing. Don't rebel against it.
