English scholar H. Ellis Davidson links apples to religious practices in Germanic paganism , from which Norse paganism developed. Further, Davidson notes that the potentially Germanic goddess Nehalennia is sometimes depicted with apples and that parallels exist in early Irish stories. Davidson asserts that while cultivation of the apple in Northern Europe extends back to at least the time of the Roman Empire and came to Europe from the Near East , the native varieties of apple trees growing in Northern Europe are small and bitter. One of the problems identifying apples in religion, mythology and folktales is that the word "apple" was used as a generic term for all foreign fruit, other than berries, including nuts, as late as the 17th century. Three goddesses claimed the apple: Hera , Athena , and Aphrodite. Paris of Troy was appointed to select the recipient.
One of the problems identifying apples in religion, mythology and folktales is that the word "apple" was used as a generic term for all foreign fruit, other than berries, including nuts, as late as the 17th century.
Three goddesses claimed the apple: Hera , Athena , and Aphrodite. Paris of Troy was appointed to select the recipient. After being bribed by both Hera and Athena, Aphrodite tempted him with the most beautiful woman in the world, Helen of Sparta.
He awarded the apple to Aphrodite, thus indirectly causing the Trojan War. To throw an apple at someone was to symbolically declare one's love; and similarly, to catch it was to symbolically show one's acceptance of that love.
An epigram claiming authorship by Plato states:  I throw the apple at you, and if you are willing to love me, take it and share your girlhood with me; but if your thoughts are what I pray they are not, even then take it, and consider how short-lived is beauty. She outran all but Hippomenes also known as Melanion , a name possibly derived from melon the Greek word for both "apple" and fruit in general ,  who defeated her by cunning, not speed.
Hippomenes knew that he could not win in a fair race, so he used three golden apples gifts of Aphrodite, the goddess of love to distract Atalanta. It took all three apples and all of his speed, but Hippomenes was finally successful, winning the race and Atalanta's hand.
Though the forbidden fruit of Eden in the Book of Genesis is not identified, popular Christian tradition has held that it was an apple that Eve coaxed Adam to share with her. As a result, in the story of Adam and Eve, the apple became a symbol for knowledge, immortality, temptation, the fall of man into sin, and sin itself. He owns half your business- now what?

Kindle Edition Verified download. I found Slicing Pie after reading an introduction about the book and realizing that the partnership dispute scenario that I just went through is unfortunately all too common.
Like many, my business partner and I split equity too early during the formation of the company. Things were great until my partner abandoned the company without cause and this left us in an unfortunate battle for how to move forward.
I wanted to download him out, but he demanded a ridiculous amount of money even though the business had almost no revenue yet. This put an immense amount of stress on the business. I read the entire book in one sitting.
Everything resonated with me as I reminisced over the past 7 businesses that I've been part of over the years. Even though the most recent business is the only one where I had a serious partnership dispute, all the past partnerships could have been handled better and more fairly if we had the kind of moral and pie slicing agreements that this book discusses. I really like the fact that the book distills the most common partnership scenarios down to basic formulas for determining everyone's slice of the pie.
I see myself using Slicing Pie as the moral operating agreement for future ventures. It really covers a lot of scenarios in a much more simple way than any other business structure advice that I've heard before.

There are a lot of things that I really like about it, but some things are getting a bit complicated. I don't think it's really intended for long-term use and at a year it is getting a bit stale. The issue I have is that not every start up is the same, obviously, and the book seems most geared towards a company creating a gadget or an app with the goal of selling the company for millions and distributing profit in that manner.
Without going into a ton of detail, we are creating something you can think of as a series. One thing is released, then a few months later, another. Our intention is not to sell the company, that's not even really a thing in the industry we are in.
