Prometheus: Yes, I’ve made it so that humans cannot foresee their own death.

Chorus: What sort of medicine did you use for this?

Prometheus: I have filled their hearts with blind hopes.

Chorus: That is a great gift you have given them, Prometheus.

Prometheus: And even more than that, I have given them the gift of fire.

Chorus: So those ephemeral creatures now possess the bright-faced fire?

Prometheus: Yes and with it they will learn many crafts.
(From Prometheus Bound by Aeschylus, verse 250
