"The clever titan taught his frail creatures how to find fire in the ash tree-how to keep it alive by covering it with ashes."
Zeus Punishes Prometheus
"Titan once again gave untiring fire to his beloved creatures. Not long thereafter, it came to pass that Zeus who reigns on high looked from his home high on Mount Olympus and saw that smoke was rising from untiring flames here and there upon the earth. His heart flooded with rage to see that mortal men once again possessed fire."
Heracles Rescues Prometheus
"I cannot kill you any more tham I could kill my father. However, I can make you wish for death every waking moment of your life"
"There he will blind you with inescapable bronze chains and shackle you with bronze spikes to a cliff high on Mount Caucasus. Your arms, and your legs, your hands and your feet will be nailed to the cliff, and ong great wedge through your chest will nail your body so that you cannot turn. You will find no refugee, either in shelter or in sleep."
"Heracles, who was busily performing his famous labors, the father of gods and men permitted Heracles to kill the ravaging eagle and to free Prometheus from his bonds."
