Anna Comnena Quotes: It Is Extraordinary That Nobody Nowadays

It Is Extraordinary That Nobody Nowadays Under The Stress Of Great Troubles Is Turned Into Stone Or A Bird Or A Tree Or Some Inanimate Object; They Used To Undergo Such Metamorphoses In Ancient Times (or So They Say), Though Whether That Is Myth Or A True Story I Know Not. Maybe It Would Be Better To Change One's Nature Into Something That Lacks All Feeling, Rather Than Be So Sensitive To Evil. Had That Been Possible, These Calamities Would In All Probability Have Turned Me To Stone.
