In the interest of not being accused of hi-jacking a thread again, I've moved this from the Obama=Cicero thread. (BTW, if Obama is
like Cicero, I'll have to seriously downgrade my opinion of Cicero. Obama's rhetoric is a triumph of style over substance; he can make a whole speech, and not really say anything.)
Lex wrote:My opinion is, all ἔργα and no παιδιά make Ἀλέξανδρος a dull παῖς. There, that's about the best I can do right now.
So the tricks that cure dull kids is called παιδιά-tricks.
Are you telling me I've misused παιδιά as a translation for "play"? If so, I'll take your word on it. It was the best word I could find in Woodhouse.
Or are you calling me a dull kid?
I, Lex Llama, super genius, will one day rule this planet! And then you'll rue the day you messed with me, you damned dirty apes!
