What is GWB saying?

The president of the United States, appearing last week with Canada's prime minister, opined the following while answering a reporter's question:

"There's a lot of people in the world who don't believe that people whose skin color may not be the same as ours can be free and self-govern. I reject that. I reject that sharply. I believe that the people who practice the Muslim faith can self-govern. I believe that people whose skins aren't ...

Book binding and Restoration

Does anybody have experience with restoring a book?

I just got a copy of Greenough's "Second Year Latin" from Alibris and the binding/cover is in sad condition. If I am to use the book it will need restoration. If the cost isn't prohibitive, then I would consider it. A sad but interesting defacement is the dictionary pages have been "indexed" by cutting out a strip on the page edge and each "tab" marked with a ...

From 'A Simple Math Problem' @ the Academy

i will pray for you. math also is not a being, it is a set of ideas in a person's head. therefore it can have no gender and therefore can not be attracted to one. therefore it is not gay.

hello from japan!

Hi~

I'm an American living in Japan right now and have just started to try learning Latin. I've been meaning to for years and never got around to it. Why now? Who knows, but I'm finding it a welcome distraction from learning kanji.. ha ha. The only problem is that I keep trying to put my sentences into Japanese word order... that and looking up "dative case" in the dictionary every 10 minutes for the ...

Audio Cic. + Hom.

I remember there have already been posts about audio - tapes on the net. But I don't know, if there are audio - tapes on Cicero, Cato, De senectute and on Homer, Odyssea, 7 and 9.
Does any one know where I can find these on the net, please?


Thank you very much,

cordially,

Moerus

phpBB question

Owner/programmer:

Where were you able to put your google adsense code in order to get such tailored listings? I put mine in the overall_footer, and I think all google sees is 15 uses of post and 9 of forum, and only gives me MBA-related ads.

Other books relating to classics

I love everything on Textkit, but as a suggestion for new material, what about some textbooks on classical language related subjects? Book discussing various Greek and Latin authors, political situations, use of language by Caesar, Cicero etc., ancient history. It's a big help when reading ancient authors to know something about their context and what was going on at the time they were writing. I have just bought another swag of old books (I think ...

Hi

Hi all,

I just got an interest in Latin and, well, I am just happy to have found this site.

I am fluent in English (US) and Spanish (Puerto Rico). Well... as close to fluent as I am going to get. I can still learn a lot from these two languages, but I decided to not let that stop me. :wink:

My interest in learning Latin came ...

Young and hopeful from Poland

I`m a student from Cracow and I have Greek and Latin in my curriculum but I`m seeking for additional textbooks. My ambition is to become a translator. One of my favorite books is Anabasis, but I like also Thucydides (actually I`m writing a work about democratic citizen ideal in "Peloponesian War").

Valete!
