This lyric ode by the ancient Greek writer Pindar was dedicated to the winner of a contest. Which statement best sums up the speaker's feelings? Creatures for a day! What is a man? What is he not? A dream of a shadow Is our mortal being. But when there comes to men A gleam of splendour given of heaven, Then rests on them a light of glory And blessed are their days.
