On the other hand I would like a catchphrase for a short termed or a limited diciplinary like learning Greek, or math, for example. I hope my English express what I mean.
I think I know what you mean.
And in light of the quote, I think I should rather use [face=SPIonic]po/noj[/face] than [face=SPIonic]mele/th[/face] for "practice" in my original composition, if I try further, right?
It depends on what you want to emphasize. If toil, then use [face=spionic]po/noj[/face]
; if care over the work, then [face=spionic]mele/th[/face]
I see you have the quote in your Aoidoi home page. The pdf file has [face=SPIonic]ti[/face] instead of [face=SPIonic]te[/face]. Which one's correct? -- though I guess it's [face=SPIonic]te[/face].
Correct, at least according to my edition. The PDF is actually a link to Bill Harris' web site.
Because I'm insane, I tried to come up with a verse rendition of your proverb. So I used the paroemiac (proverb) meter, x-uu-uu--, where x=u, - or even uu:
[face=spionic]mele/th fore/ein a)reth/n soi[/face]
But I'm not sure this is terribly elegant. I will think on it some more.
