I am currently beginning to study latin and I am looking for help change a quote slightly

the quote in its original for goes as follows

Et portae inferi non praevalebunt ad versus eam
-And the flames of hell shall not prevail against it

-And the flames of hell shall not prevail against me

Thank you in advance

Das Y Chromosome

I propose, that girls are more shallow and stupid than boys. This may appear sexist, but I give a balanced argument. 99% of people nowadays in some way are stupid whatever das sex. I included we just lack any intelligence understanding tolerance of certain things. I for example lack awareness of things which I do not want to know I automatically dismiss and am also one ignorant bugger.

Nevertheless, my ignorance is but the negligible ...

Hello. I'm a new member.

As Captain Obvious would say, I want to learn Ancient Greek. I already started with Pharr's Homeric Greek textbook a few weeks ago, and now that Greek has proved not to be another ephemeral whim of mine, I decided to join the community.

I am a theatre student, a thespian, and my main interests are Greek drama, Homer, and lyrical poetry - basicially all Greek which was spoken - hence the glottal in my username ...

North and Hillard...very portable

Salvete Omnes

Just thought I would share with you a non latin reason why I like North and Hillard's Latin Prose Composition. It is a small hardback, tucked away in my coat pocket, that I can take anywhere. For example, my daughter plays on a very strong hockey team. There are a lot of boring "blow outs". Ah yes..... out comes North and Hillard for some fun study. Also very portable are the Loeb Greek ...

What is your handle(username) at textkit?

I'm sitting here in at the institute with nothing to do because the professor who is my project guide is out of station, & I can't go home 'cause he comes back on the 12th. So I'm here perfectly jobless posting stupid posts. Aah how I will look back nostalgically upon my pleasant colege days when I am an old edentulous man.

So, how did you decide upon a handle(username) for use here? Mine is ...

To throw or not to throw

That is the question. I was sitting down today and I had brought 3 jaffa cakes to school. You throw a jaffa cake and it flies far and fast like shuriken and is bound to cause striking chaos for such a nice sweet foodstuff. But I was about to throw into the kitchens, it's not asif I don't have the sphericals to do so, for I last year lobbed so many things. However, as I ...

I find 'agere' a confusing verb. Wheelock's gives about five different definitions for it and in one exercise 'age, age' means 'come! come!'. What's the best usage?

Thank you.

What is the Importance of pronunciation?

I somehow find the importance granted to pronunciation in Latin unneccessary and excessive. Today I suppose all Latin communication is essentially non-verbal, and even if a group of people wish to talk all that is neccessary is an agreed-upon common system of pronouncing words, within the said group. That said how do we know what pronunciation the ancients actually adopted?

I find the same problem in another ancient language: Sanskrit. My Sanskrit teacher in school ...
