"...(To Oedipus) You go into the house, and you,
too, Creon, inside. Don't make so much
trouble over some small annoyance" The Victim provides a quality of perception and strength that protects against victimization from others. Chorus Leader
"Stop my lords. Here comes Jocasta from the house, in the nick of time. With her help, you must compose this quarrel between you." The Eternal Child is determined to remain young in mind, body and spirit, does not want responsibility Creon
"...As it is now, I am greeted by all, everyone salutes me---that's the key
to success for them. What makes you
