Midas kiss Picture
Midas: in Greek mythology, a king who due to his obsession with gold, wished a touch that could turn everything to gold from Dionysus. After accidental turning his daughter into metal statue, he began begging Dionysus to take back his gift. Dionysus responded it was not in his nature to take back gifts, but that Midas could wash off the golden touch in the nearby Pactolus River to be rid of it. After that, the sand in the river turned to gold.
