digitum minimum movere non potes

I have been trying to trace the origin of a short Latin quotation:

"Et digitum minimum movere non potes ut non mundum universum excites."
('You can't move your little finger, lest you awaken the whole world.')

I stumbled across this on a Russian website (http://giscraft.ru/methods/method8.shtml). The authors of the site are convinved that the words are those of Pierre-Simon Laplace, a mathematician with strong deterministic beliefs who wrote during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries (see ...

BLD §95 II Tranlation Q's

(Timicus lamentat) :(

§95 II.

"Alto muros, longa at dura bella, clara victorias quis non laudat?"

Isn't "victorias" the accusative plural of victories? So I translated this as "famous victories" rather than "famous battles" (claras pugnas).

(sigh) The previous set of excercises really threw me. I must have gone over §86 10 times without getting it right. I've had a lot of difficulty selecting the proper case ...

Adjectives as adverbs

A while before I found Textkit, I came across a note in Wheelock that said adjectives sometimes have adverbial strength or power or some related word. I translated the indicated adjectives as adverbs in English. Is this correct, or is there some other way to translate them?

Smyth Auction

FYI..

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... eName=WDVW

Smyth's Greek Grammar comes up for auction only about 5 times a year. I bet it'll sell somewhere in the mid 30s price range. Worth it if the book is in good condition. You'll pay much more through Alibris or Abebooks. You can of course purchase this new as a reprint from Amazon as well. I think it sells for $42.

It's dated 1916, but ...

Luk 20:34 And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage:

Luk 20:36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.

uparkhein and einai in Phil 2,6

Phl 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:


Phl 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of ...
