I think therefore I am.

Hello everyone! I am new to these forums, and this is my very first thread! It is very nice to be here. Anyway, I created this thread to address a certain topic. I would like to discuss the topic of existence and the quote that is the title of this thread. René Descartes said the following: I think therefore I am. How many of you people agree with this statement? I, for one, think this ...

Lesson XIV Paragraph 133 part 5

The English reads:
It was right for Cyrus to send gifts to his soldiers.

One possible translation is"
a1cion h]n tw|~ Ku=rw|~ dw~ra toi=j stratiw&taij pe/mpain.

However, that sentence has two dative nouns (one of which is subjective, so it shurely can't be right).

Another possible translation is:
a1cion h]n, o9 ga\r Ku=roj dw~ra toi=j stratiw&taij pe/mpain.
But that sentence is now broken by a comma, and so doesn't seem quite right.



Any thoughts? ...

is there a list of books you already have jeff?

maybe a running poll of books on your bookshelf which aren't already scanned?

i'd really really like sidgwick's greek verse composition if you have it. there isn't anything like that on the net at the moment, unlike grammars, prose compositions, commentated texts, &c. and u just can't get that in bookstores around here...

i'm hoping that if sidgwick's prose composition is public domain, then so is his verse composition... ...

Vulgate?

SALVETE OMNES!
Jeff, I don't know if you have it yet, but what about the Vulgate? It certainly is public domain.
VALETE BENE!

Hello, I am new to this site and a beginner in Latin (using Wheelock's 6th Ed.) I was wondering, does anyone out there know where i can find the Latin Vulgate?

I can comprehend most of the other stuff.... but i just cannot grasp what the exact ...
