- Archibald MacLeish
 
 

Mark Summers

- Homer, The Odyssey
 
 

Tyler Jacobson

"Humans had a saying: 'mess with the bull and get the horns'. Well, Harpies had a saying, too - mess with a Harpy and die."

- Gena Showalter
 
 

Ricardo Martinez

"If all the ways I have been along were marked on a map and joined up with a line, it might represent a minotaur."

- Pablo Picasso
 
 

Chase Stone

"Try an' get a straight answer out of a centaur. Ruddy stargazers. Not interested in anythin' closer'n the moon."

- J. K. Rowling
 
 

Michal Dziekan

"She was usually pictured as a young woman dressed in white that roamed field bounds. She assailed folk working at noon causing heatstrokes and aches in the neck. Sometimes she even caused madness."

- Unknown
 
 

Piotr Jablonski

"Arachne had gotten into trouble because of pride. She'd bragged about her tapestries being better than Athena's, which had led to Mount Olympus's first reality TV punishment program: 'So You Think You Can Weave Better Than a Goddess?' Arachne had lost in a big way."

- Rick Riordan
 
 

Maria Corte Maidagan

"Mighty Atlas who holds aloft on his shoulders the heavenly firmament . . . Atlas who props the starry sky."

Bill Sanderson

- Ellen Meloy
 
 

Goni Montes

"She is Pele-honua-mea, Pele of the Sacred Land...the eater of land, when she devours the land with her flames. She who rules the volcanoes of Hawai'i, and Mankind has no power to resist her. When Pele is heard from, her word is the final word."

- Herb Kawainui Kane
 
 

Douglas Smith

- Zeus
 
 

Rudy Gutierrez

"I'm like a phoenix. I rise from the ashes."

- Bess Myerson
 
 

David Palumbo

"The Lammasu represent the zodiacs, parent-stars, or constellations, they encompass all life within them."

- Natalia Klimczak
 
 

James Bennett

"Lethe, the river of oblivion, rolls his watery labyrinth, which whoso drinks forgets both joy and grief."

- John Milton
 
 

Karla Ortiz

"With each stolid snip, our free will is stripped, as Fate's fluid flames are fanned. Life's thread is spun, measured, and snipped To weave the cold words of life's fickle script."

- Heather Ober, 'Three Fates'
 
 

Dongyun Lee

"This self-existing energy is called 'wind horse' in the Shambhala teachings. The 'wind' principle is that the energy of basic goodness is strong and exuberant...But at the same time, basic goodness can be ridden, which is the principle of the horse. In some sense the horse is never tamed. But you can invoke and provoke the energy of basic goodness in your life."

- Chogyam Trungpa
 
 

Rob Rey

"My men like satyrs grazing on the lawns, shall with their goat-feet dance an antic hay."

- Christopher Marlowe
 
 

Maciej Frolow

"The blade itself gleamed like a beacon in the night.The sword was glowing from the intensity of its strength and power and knowledge that it was justice incarnate, and that after a slumber of uncounted years its time had again come."

- Excalibur
 
 

Leonard Peng

"The Cyclopes do not concern themselves over Zeus of the aegis, nor any of the rest of the blessed gods, since we are far better than they."

- Polyphemos
 
 

Tim Bower

"Thou, light-winged Dryad of the trees. In some melodious plot of beechen green, and shadows numberless. Singest of summer in full-throated ease.”"

- John Keats
 
 

Charles Chaisson

"Perseus laid ambush for the sentinel eye of Phorcys, the ball of the sleepless eye of the Graiai, that passed from hand to hand, giving each her share under the wing of sleep in turn."

- Nonnus
