Unit Fourteen--Exercises

Several items have given me much trouble. I'm giving my best guesses.

4. Semper sic vivamus ut naturam optimam ducem sequi videamur.

Let us so live that we are seen to follow the best leader. ???

I don't see the grammar of the three consecutive accusatives: "naturam optimam ducem".

15. Aliquid inveni modo ames.

May you like only what I find. ???

21. Si tanta vis virtutis est, ut eam non solum in eis, quos ...

Unit Fourteen 14

Drill, I, 4d and 5a

I may have gone way astray here, so correct, please.

I-4-d. Quidam dixerunt aliquos vicisse Caesarem.

Quidam looks like the subject of dixerunt; hence: "Certain ones said. . ."
but both aliquos and Caesarem look accusative. So should it be Englished as:

"... Caesar defeated somebody";
or, "somebody defeated Caesar".

My intuitive preference, "Caesar defeated somebody."

I-5-a. Homines quidam mirantur verenturque Caesarem.

Should it be "Certain men admire and fear ...

1. Quo quisque est sollertior, hoc docet facilius.

4. Vix ulli credit, nec quisquam ex omnibus gentibus ad eum accedere audet.

7. Nisi cui imperabis ui illi servo ignoscat, mox morietur.

Units 9-11 Review B

I'm having trouble with the translation to Latin (III. Sentence 1)
How many days after me do you want to set out to Rome?
M&F have previously given us quantus - how much, how great, and quot - how many. I took from this that if you were referring to countable things you used quot, and for, well.....quantities that had to be measured, you used quantus.
However, M&F's translation into Latin is
Quantīs diēbus post mē ...

4. Multi viri sua sententia sunt felices; illi autem multorum saepe domini sunt; sed plurimum servi.

I need a literal translation; I can't pick out the objective genitive indicated in the hint.

Here is my effort. Please correct.

Many men with his opinion are happy; of them however many often are lords; but most are servants.

sua sententia: is this ablative of description?

Unit 11 Exercises

I am having problems with some of the sentences in the Unit 11 exercises. The sentences are:

11) Bonum est velle pro amatis pati.

12) Si conans servare vitam consulis moriaris tui cives fortissimum factum laudent et ut statua ponatur in foro hortentur.

15) Fassus est se natum esse pauperibus parentibus quibus amor sui esset maximus.

M&F w/o Answer Key?

OK, 25 years ago I used M&F in a year long course. I didn't do any Latin after that course. I recently picked up Wheelock and was going to start to go through it seriously on my own. But I read the rant about Wheelock that an M&F partisan had posted and I thought OK I'll use M&F. But then I heard that there is no answer key! Whoa! I had just worked through EVERY ...
