ORACLE
[ Also see Fate Futurity Gods Prophecy (Prophesy) ]

A Delphic sword.
      - Aristotle, Politica (I, 2),
        referring to the ambiguous Delphic Oracles

The oracles are dumb,
  No voice or hideous hum
    Runs thro' the arched roof in words deceiving.
      - John Milton, Hymn on Christ's Nativity
         (l. 173)

Thou shalt go thou shalt return never in battle shalt thou perish.
  [Lat., Ibis redibis non morieris in bello.]
      - Oracle,
        utterance which through absence of punctuation and position on "non" may be interpreted favorably or the reverse

I am Sir Oracle,
  And when I ope my lips, let no dog bark!
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merchant of Venice
         (Gratiano at I, i)
