Choose me and I'll give you power and wealth over all lands
Choose me and I'll give you wisdom to win any battle
Choose me and I'll give you the most beautiful mortal woman in the world.
But the important thing is I got my apple
An example of the power of love is the judgement of Paris. One day Hera, Athena and Aphrodite were fighting over the Golden Apple of Discord, labeled "For the Fairest". Zeus chose Paris to decide which goddess got the apple .
Each goddess offered rewards to Paris in exchange for the Golden Apple.. Hera offered him power and wealth, Athena offered him wisdom, and Aphrodite offered him love.
Paris gave the apple to Aphrodite, then later seduced and abducted Helen of Sparta, which led to the Trojan War. This shows that love is stronger than power or wisdom and strong enough to lead to one of the most devastating war in classical mythology.
