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 ...

Key to D'Ooge available?

Hello,<br />I am working through The Beginner's Guide to Latin, and was wondering if a complete set of answers to the exercises is available. <br /><br />Judging by the topics here, I presume that a complete key hasn't been made. Is this correct?

Pain and Awareness

"Go to sleep for a while. That way you won't feel it." <br /><br />That was always Mom's reply when, as a child, I tried to use a cut finger or a scraped knee to stay up a little longer. "But, MOm, I can't go to bed! It hurts!" <br /><br />Oddly enough, she was always right. ;D And when I was asleep wasn't the only time I could forget a paper cut or a ...

neon melos

Chairete, o anthropoi! <br /><br /> now isn't this a brilliant site about Classical tongues, and with so many interesting people from around the globe! <br /><br /> I am new in here, and hope to make most of my learning Ancient Greek, a language I always wanted to master, before moving on to discover the world of Hellas, its wisdom and celebration of man and nature. <br /><br /> Currently studying Ploutarchou - Bios ...

alrighty

My new Smyth Grammar finally arrived today, and I am ready to tackle some classical greek. I expect that my koine exprience will help greatly (it seems that vocab might be the biggest stumbling block).<br /><br />However, Smyth doesn't have much in the way of reading. So what do you veterans recommend for beginning reading? Do I start with Homer, or is he more difficult because of the time period? Something else?<br /><br />Preferably something ...

Prospecting in Used Bookstores....

I went cruising used bookstores this weekend to see if I might happen to trip over anything on Jeff's wish-list.... I didn't, but I did find a whole lot that wound up on bookshelves! I've been endlessly choked due to not being able to find books in Latin in new bookstores.... and here in the used bookstores I found a complete Horace (useful for upcoming Latin course), some Ovid, Pliny's letters (which I've been looking ...

A linka linka link

Might I suggest a thread just for posting links to sites or pages we've found useful or simply interesting in our studies?<br /><br />Ideally such a thread would consist of mainly the links and brief notes on why the link-er (poster?) found it interesting or useful rather than endless "I thought it was great" v. "I thought it was dreadful" discussions.<br /><br />The links might be to language sites, dictionaries, texts, or cultural information. <br ...
