CADMEAN VICTORY

A CADMEAN VICTORY is one that immediately places the victor in a disadvantageous position. In Greek myth, Cadmus was the youngest son of Phoenician King Agenor. Cadmus slew a monster that guarded a freshwater spring and sowed its teeth across the ground like corn. Immediately, an army of soldiers sprang up from the spot where the teeth had fallen and launched an attack against the Phoenicians.


Thank heavens, the sun has gone in, and I don't have to go out and enjoy it.
Logan Pearsall Smith (1865-1946)
