Two cultural myths
As Westerners, we are taught stories of King Arthur, the search for the Holy Grail, Beowulf, the Crusades... in other words our dominant myth is of the great quest, the noble cause. This is even better if the cause seems hopeless, but the only noble action that can be taken.

The dominant myth in Middle Eastern literature is the banquet.
From Fr Guy.
