Art pales when compared to the workings of nature.
Ars longa vita brevis. The craft so long [to learn], the life so short.Quoted in Seneca Debrevitate vitae,1. The original was in Greek.
"The myths," says Horace in his Ars Poetica, "have been invented by wise men to strengthen the laws and teach moral truths." While Horace endeavored to make clear the very spirit and essence of the ancient myths, Euhemerus pretended, on the contrary, that "myths were the legendary history of kings and heroes, transformed into gods by the admiration of the nations." It is the latter method which was inferentially followed by Christians when they agreed upon the acceptation of euhemerized patriarchs, and mistook them for men who had really lived.Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
