From the Hand of Prometheus

To suffer woes which Hope thinks infinite;
To forgive wrongs darker than death or night;
To defy Power, which seems omnipotent;
To love, and bear; to hope till Hope creates
From it's own wreck the thing it contemplates;
Neither to change, not falter, nor repent;
This, like thy glory, Titan, is to be
Good, great and joyous, beautiful and free;
This is alone Life, Joy, Empire, and Victory
Percy Shelley, Prometheus Unbound

God help thee, old man, thy thoughts have created a creature in thee; and he whose intense thinking thus makes him a Prometheus; a vulture feeds upon that heart for ever; that vulture the very creature he creates.
Herman Melville, Moby‐Dick

When all the other animals, downcast looked upon the earth, he (Prometheus) gave a face raised on high to man, and commanded him to see the sky and raise his high eyes to the stars.
Ovid , Metamorphoses

They say, 'The coward dies many times'; so does the beloved. Didn't the eagle find a fresh liver to tear in Prometheus every time it dined?
C. S. Lewis, A Grief Observed

Great Balls Of Fire!, Jerry Lee Lewis

Smoke On the Water, Deep Purple

Light My Fire, The Doors

Fire and Rain, James Taylor

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

Once again, an intriguing and wonderous work of art, accompanied by thought provoking quotes and music selection is great.
