Herodotus and the Nine Muses

This isn't a Greek Language question, but related.

The nine books of Herodotus' Histories were named after the nine muses sometime after his death. Does anyone know which book corresponds with which muse? I haven't had any luck finding an answer.

Very new newbie...

Hello. I am very new to Textkit. After 25 years away from my high school Latin, my love of things ancient Roman has reasserted itself in a manner I can't deny any longer...so I found this place and mean to study Latin again.

This is a great resource.

Please tell me this is not a joke!

They are saying it's legal and everything. This must be a scam. A degree for 89 bucks?


However, legitimate online education/degrees are attractive because of the price...

I've seen prices starting at $2,000... that seems realistic, but I don't know... I'm just barely starting to do research on this subject....

Need Translation Assistance

Hello Latin Forum!

I am a simple old woman, mostly self-educated. I have a friend who likes to send me little tidbits in (what I suspect to be poor) Latin. Normally I can use a beginning Latin text I picked up at a flea market to assist in translating. But this time, while I am getting the gist of individual words, I am not grasping the overall meaning of the phrase... I just can't seem ...

Reditus ad origines

Num nemo linguam graecam loqui vult?
Scio linguam latinam faciliorem esse scriptu, sed graecam mirabiliorem esse auditu. Verorum Romanorum est linguam graecam cognoscere ac uti. His verbis finem facio, sperando aliquem vobis responsurum esse eis meis voluntatibus.

I'm sure you all know Ennius, the Latin poet.
His Annales only came to us by fragments. So we can find a fragment of Ennius in Cicero, de divinatione I, 48.

I found a sentence and I understand the Latin, but I have difficulties to translate this in proper Dutch, cause the English translation is a bit odd to me.

Exin candida se radiis dedit icta foras lux.

icta radiis (I found this in a ...

Invenit qui non quaerit

He who does not search finds.

Althought I made this up myself, this is derived strongly from Buddhist wisdom which I endorse very much so.

I would not like to explain this quote at this moment, but I ám wondering if there is anyone who recognizes himself in these poetic words and finds himself not searching?
