When all the other animals, downcast looked upon the earth, [Prometheus] gave a face raised on high to man, and commanded him to see the sky and raise his high eyes to the stars.
My son, I caution you to keep
The middle way, for if your pinions dip
Too low the waters may impede your flight;
And if they soar too high the sun may scorch them.
There is a high way, easily seen when the sky is clear. 'Tis called the Milky Way, famed for its shining whiteness.
Calumny ever pursues the great, even as the winds hurl themselves on high places.
Quote of the day
The zoo animal in a cage exhibits all these abnormalities that we know so well from our human companions. Clearly, then, the city is not a concrete jungle, it is a human zoo.
