PROMETHEUS: Why should I fear since I am fated not to die?
CHORUS: But he might inflict on you an ordeal even more bitter than this.
PROMETHEUS: Let him, for all I care! I am prepared for anything.
CHORUS: Wise are they who do homage to Necessity.
PROMETHEUS: Worship, adore, and fawn upon whoever is your lord. But for Zeus I care less than nothing. Let him do his will, let him hold his power for his little day—since he will not bear sway over the gods for long.
