<br />I just noticed something about the site. <br /><br />If you click on Learn Latin (http://www.textkit.com/latin_grammar.php), it takes you to the main page enumerating downloadable books, categorized by "grammars" or "readers". <br /><br />Here's what I noticed... the Latin Grammars (http://www.textkit.com/latin-grammar.php) link on that page. It takes you to another page which helps you choose a book. There are two books listed as beginner level, and one as ...

your favourite Hellenic maxims

<br /> Sometimes I come up with short Greek phrases, masterpieces of rhythm and condensed meaning, that even though they were first pronounced millenia ago, still can cut like a knife and whisper to me the way out to many every-day situations. <br /><br /> To me, they are, along with "grandpa Homer", the reason for which I wanted to study Greek. <br /><br /> So, give me your top 3 of Greek quotations that ...
