Single is the Race

A 6th century BCE poem written by Greek poet Pindar

Single is the race, single
Of men and gods;
From a single mother we both draw breath.
But a difference of power in everythingKeeps us apart;
For one is as nothing, but the brazen sky
Stays a fixed habituation for ever.
Yet we can in greatness of mind
Or of body be like the immortals.
