Right, once again I am having trouble finding the subject!! (It's the curse of the infinitive....) Here is the sentence:-
Quid vero stultius quam cetera parare quae parantur pecunia sed amicos non parare optimam et pulcherrimam quasi supellectilem vitae
My translation has ended up (very worryingly) as
Why indeed that(?) the more stupid than the rest get those (?) which are obtained by money, but ?? to not get friends, the finest and most beautiful things, as if the furniture of life..
I would guess it should be something like:
Why indeed that those more stupid than the rest get (the things) which are obtained by money and not friends, which are the finest and most beautiful things, so to speak, the furniture of life..
But I don't know why!! I can't seem to see accusatives to make up accusative infinitive constructions, and the infinitives are throwing me.
Any and all help appreciated
