killing lions

We have not even to risk the adventure alone; for the heroes of all time have gone before us; the labryinth is thoroughly known; we have only to follow the thread of the hero-path. And where we had thought to find an abonmination, we shall find a god; where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves; where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence; where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world.

Joseph Campbell, The Hero with a Thousand Faces, p. 25
