To Richard Picchiarini,
Child of the City
“. . . The gods of whom you speak were never all-powerful. They had, at all times, by their side those darker powers which they named the Jotuns, and who worked the suffering, the disasters, the ruin of our world . . . The omnipotent gods have no such facilitation. With their omnipotence they take over the woe of the universe."
