Iliad 2:200-201

I don't understand how the translations (on Perseus) I checked come up with; 'listen to the word of others who are better than you.'

In order for it to mean listen to those who are better than you oi(\ fe/rteroi would have to be in the dative. (or accusative -> obey ...

Can God create a rock which He cannot lift?

Question: Can God hear colors?
Answer: Invalid question, colors are not meant to be heard.

Similarly: Impossibilities are not meant to be achieved.

Question: Can God create a rock which He cannot lift?
Answer: Invalid question, because it is impossible for there to exist a rock which God cannot lift, God's ability is limitless.
Impossibilities are not meant to be achieved ... just like colors are not meant to be heard.

Was there a point in time in which there was no creation?

Creation is one of God's attributes.
God attains His perfectness through His attributes.
God's perfectnedss in ultimate and is always present.

For God to always be ultimately perfect His attributes of perfectness have to always be in effect.

Therefore, God has always been creating and there was no point in time when there was no creation.

What do you think?

De puero male morato

Here's another one... :)

de puero male morato

Quondam poeta senex erat, talis poeta antiqua et bona uirtute ut oportet. uespere aliquo, cum domo sedebat, tempestas foeda orsa est; imbro ruente poeta senex ad caminum, in quo ignis ardebat et mala torrebant, bona delectatione sedebat.

"miseris, qui fores in hac tempestate sunt, non uestes sicci futuri sunt", dixit, nam uere poeta bonus erat.

"o aperi! frigeo et ...

eorgas / eeipen

e)orgaj

According to Munro, e)orgaj < "weworgas". Presumably this (like leloipa is a perfect formation? In the context (Iliad III.57) it would work fairly well as a stative.

e)eipen

Though I see it all the time, I'm still not sure what's going on here. I thought the stem was "wep", so an aorist formation would be ewep- > eip (as in Attic?). Whence then has come the extra epsilon?

thanks as ever

American Independence: Good?

With July 4th looming, and our US colleagues gearing themselves up to burning themselves on barbecues and scaring themselves witless with fireworks to celebrate their independence, I was wondering whether this might be a good topic to debate (with our accustomed tolerance, mutual respect and good humour, of course) the following motion:

This House believes the independence of the United States to be a good thing.

Howdy from your resident cowgirl!

Wow, I haven't posted in a while! I guess I'll give an update of my life, hehe, I've been riding a lot, thanks to the Big Sky Youth Empowerment Project I finally got to get back into horseback riding! Still studying Latin, but I had to rediscover my country girl roots. I'm going to be working at some stables in order to keep riding. I have a gallery up at Yahoo and Photobucket of the ...

How did YOU learn Latin

How did you learn latin? What would you change in your past learning process if you were to go through it again? What did you find the hardest and what did you find the easiest thing? Did you skip a few pages, write down declensions or conjugations a hundred times or memorize the passive voice in a weird way? Did you use only one book or as many as you could?

Tell us about the ...
