De hominis natura

Quot hora, pueri puellaeque? Hora philosophiae!

Agite amici, de natura hominis dicamus. Atque prima quaestio est:
“Utrum natura hominis est mala an bona? Cur :?: ”

(Obsecro autem vos responsum facilum et brevum scribere, quod potestas latinae scribendae mea parvula est) :oops:

In need of some latin dynamos

I have been attempting latin for quite awhile now, and I'm just starting to get the hang of it. I have my foot in the door, but I need help with a translation.

The fast horse enveloped shadow over man.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated. As you can tell, I'm no professional.

Festina Lente

This is one of the sentences in Ch.1 of Wheelock.

It is from festino, festinare.

My question is, what tense/mood is "festina", as it does not fit in with present, future or imprefect indicative active.

Or is it an irregular conjugation?

Which book?

I want to learn Attic Greek, and I'm trying to find a book. I have no teacher. I've found Teach Yourself Ancient Greek, but I don't even know if that book teaches you Attic. It looks good though, except that it uses "c" for sigma and uses a strange order of noun/adjective cases.
Is this a good book, or what would you recommend?
