    Prometheus, however, did not care for idle life among the gods on Mount Olympus. Instead he preferred to spend his time on the earth, helping men to find easier and better ways of living.
    rosmirhas quoted3 years ago
    But Hercules, not satisfied with this, wished also to have something good to drink.
    "Dear guest," said Pholus, "there is a cask in my cellar; but it belongs to all the Centaurs jointly, and I hesitate to open it because I know how little they welcome guests."
    "Open it with good courage," answered Hercules, "I promise to defend you against all displeasure."
    As it happened, the cask of wine had been given to the Centaurs by Bacchus, the god of wine, with the command that they should not open it until, after four centuries, Hercules should appear in their midst.
