Need help with a selection from Ch. 36

I'm stuck on the second sentence of "I Love Her ... I Love Her Not," which reads:
Quare id faciam fortasse requiris.
I can translate each word separately, but I cannot put them together into a meaningful sentence. Is there some implied word that I should supply to make sense out of it?

Thank you very much for any help.

The future lasts a long time

I have very basic questions, some of them to do with motivation, which the more experienced and erudite contributors might find strange if not barbaric. But here goes. I've started the first book of Athenaze and am, in the long-term, primarily interested in reading Homeric Greek, Plato & Aristotle. But I still find it amazingly difficult to read very basic sentences in the Greek alphabet. Any advice? How long does this last, 2 years, 5? ...

subjunctive perfect vowel lengths

I'm all the way to Moreland & Fleischer's Unit 2 (whoo-hoo!), and have noticed a discrepancy in its Subjunctive Perfect Active forms and those of another couple of books I'm consulting (e.g., an old Jenney, I believe). M&H don't have macrons on the initial -i of the suffixes:


Whereas other books say the initial i is long, and so show macrons for -eris, -erimus, and -eritis. Without the macrons ...
