he spurns the gods snippet

“Killer–is it in my power to give gifts to a chieftain? Do not mock me.”

“Do you not give to the gods? Are men not less than the gods? And yet in this, are they not greater: that what they give they yet may stretch out their hand and take back again? A man may spurn the gods. He may slight them with an empty hand. In his greed he fears nothing. But is not fear the root and the stalk and the stem of greed?”
