Two Questions about Wheelock's

Hello Everyone, This is my first time using this forum.

My first Question is from the Sententiae Antiquae from Chapter 38.
"Paravisse divitias fuit multis hominibus non finis sed mutatio malorum."
No matter how hard I try I can't make any sense of this.

Also, I was wondering about what to do after I finished Wheelock's Latin. I have taught myself for the most part. I feel pretty confident with the grammar I have learned ...

"Protect me from what I want"

I feel like I should know the translation of this sentence, but I'm not sure. Which of these is it? (Ignore my possible word order errors and vocabulary.)

Protege me a quo volo.
Protege me a quo velim.

I'm not sure about what mood to use...

Pharr Lesson XXV, Paragraph 150, sentence 6

(/Hrh e)kh/deto Danaw=n o(/ti tou\s qnh/skontas w)ra/eto.

What's confusing me is the second part of the sentence - o(ra/w does not seem like a deponent verb, yet if the w)ra/eto is in middle/passive, what is the relationship of tou\s qnh/skontas in the accusative case with the rest of the sentence?

And now that I look at this again, since the first verb there is also non-deponent and in mid/pass, how do the two nouns relate?

Perfects in Rev. 3:8

My understanding of the perfect tense is that it describes a state rather than
an action.
I am curious how this affects the meaning of a phrase in Revelation 3:8.
i)dou\ de/dwka e)nw/pio/n sou qu/ran h)new|gme/nhn,
Concerning the first perfect, de/dwka , is it important that it has been given,
or just that it is available now?
Concerning the second perfect, h)new|gme/nhn, my question is; Does this
participle say anything about the fact that this ...

His verbis feci ut Steven (benissimus) vomiret

Consuetum sermonem cum haberemus,

Is edidit e sanguine crucem

atque ego aegre ferens femellas respondi e vagina tenax album paulumve viride ius

Subito Steven ex sermone vomiens discessit! Quid mali?

Translation challenge

I was thinking about my feeble efforts on the Koine board, and it came to me, a perfect translation sentence:

Poetry is what's lost in translation.

Latin or Greek.

I'll post my Greek rendition in a few days.

Little translation help

Hello all!

I'm new to this forum and I'm trying to translate a few sentences from a AngrA song. Here they are:

Salve ara, salve victima
De passionis gloria
Qua vita mortem pertulit
Et morte vitam reddidit


Unfortunately, I can't provide you any translation trials I have made, because my vocaulary knowledge related to these sentences is "ara" and "victima".
If you can't (or even don't want to) translate it. You could provide the meaning ...

Declension of Greek Names

Does anyone know how to decline Greek names of the type Echo -us, Dido -us? My dictionary has the '-us' in the genitive of Dido marked as having a long 'u', but not the other one, so there might be two declensions here. Gratias ago.

Top 3 of Loeb?

What will be the best selection from the Loeb series if you're to win the Ides of March Contest and you picked up the Book Lot number 1?

I don't even have the full list of Loeb series and do not know which book is the most worthy to have on your shelves and read in all the leisure time you have.

Speed up Acrobat startup

Acrobat 6.0.2 is really bloated and I've been resenting it since 5. I didn't have much to do today and I was poking around for acrobat hacks and I found this nifty trick.

I would not trust his advice to put all plugins in the optional folder, but I would be conservative and put plugins that you hardly ever use in the optional folder. (However I'm ...
