The five utterances of Perseus in the story of the "Gorgon's head that strikes me the most are the following: 

- "I would willingly risk my life to do so"
- "And, besides, what would my dear mother do, if her beloved son were turned into a stone?"
If anybody is in fault, it is myself; for I have the honor to hold your very brilliant and excellent eye in my own hand!"
,--"I hold your eye fast in my hand, and shall keep it safely for you, until you please to tell me where to find these Nymphs."
"Behold it, then!"  .
