Ancient Heroes:

 

Hercules follows the path of Virtue (cont'd)

Hercules then turned to the other woman, and she spoke to him saying, "The gods gave you strength so that you can help the weak, to punish those who do evil deeds, and to use your strength for the good of mankind.  Only in this matter will you find true happiness and mankind will respect you."  Hercules then asked the woman, "What is your name?".  To which the woman replied, "My name is Virtue, and I only have friends with my name not enemies."

Hercules then bowed his head down once again between his hands and began to think.  As he moved his hands away from his face he could see "Virtue" go down the thin path, and the woman who called herself "Happiness" go down the wide path.  The women soon vanished beyond the site of Hercules.

Hercules got up and finally decided what he would do.  He followed the path of Virtue.  His soul filled with true happiness as he had made the right choice.  The gods looked fondly upon Hercules and his decision.  Hercules had taken the path that would make him a hero.
