I consider buying a Latin-English dictionary. I know that the options are legion, and that one's choice is dependent on a multitude of things: level of study, areas of interest, price etc. Still, I'd love to hear some opinions about dictionaries. What are your personal experiences in this matter, which ones have you liked or disliked etc.? Please share your thoughts :-)
Is it time again for one of those fatuous wastes-of-time which I post now and again? How about translating (rewording into Greek idiom first will guarantee a better result) a little quip from a much maligned politician who was also a classicist of the highest ability...
History is littered with the wars which everybody knew would never happen.
Extra Brownie points for anyone identifying it (without Google!!).

:oops: Some people really do take the biscuit - me for example. I have only just turned up here and I have already broken the rules by trying to introduce myself in someone else's thread. I always tell my pupils to read the instructions before they try to answer any of the questions...D'oh!
