An Occasional Thought

Teacher in Every Art

Posted on

The statue of Prometheus in Rockefeller Center is one of my favorite sights in one of my favorite parts of one of my favorite cities.  I think the quote behind the statue (barely visible in this picture) is intriguing:

“Prometheus, teacher in every art, brought the fire that hath proved to mortals a means to mighty ends.”

I’m not sure what it means to be a “teacher in every art,” but it strikes me as one of the highest imaginable compliments.
