216 - Hercules and Minerva

Hercules was advancing along a narrow road. 
He saw on the ground an object similar to an apple and tried to trample on it. The object duplicated his volume. On having seen this, Hercules trod on it with more violence still, striking it also with his mace. But the object kept on growing, closing with his big volume the road. The hero threw then his mace, and there he remained planted, prey of the biggest astonishment.

In this Minerva appeared to him and said:

"Listen, my brother; this object is the spirit of the Dispute and of the Discord; if one keeps it in calm, it remains as it was at the beginning; but if it is touched, look how it grows!

 

The Dispute and the Discord are a cause of great damage to the humanity. Never stimulate them.
