Narcissus and Echo

Narcissus is a beautiful young man who falls in love with his own reflection. He sits by a pond all day, staring at himself. In one way his reflection is his 'twin'. But there is another twin motif in this story. Echo is a nymph who repeats what the gods have said, so other gods can hear it. Echo falls in love with Narcissus (who of course doesn't pay any attention to her) and she pines away until only her voice remains. Narcissus jumps in the pond to reach himself and drowns.
