Zeus eavesdrops on Sisyphus

Sisyphus:  Per ardua ad astra ... nearly there!
Zeus      :   Nearly, Sisyphus? You fool yourself.
Sisyphus:  Just one more push ...
Zeus      :   ... and down it goes again. That's seventy-two thousand five hundred and
                   thirteen. Ha!
Sisyphus:   ... and down. All is well. Death lies not in chains, but she cannot enchain
                    me. Per ardua ad vitam!
Zeus       :  This is absurd.
