He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path. He who sees the doom of others can deliver it.

Psuedolus: You are in need of a soothsayer!
Erronius: How did you know?
Pseudolus: I'd be a fine soothsayer if I didn't.
The cards, the cards, the cards will tell,
The past, the present and the future as well.
The cards, the cards, just take three,
Take a little trip into your future with me...
"This is your life line. It's very short. Isn't that awkward?"
