Origin of fero, tuli, latus

I'm curious as to how this particular verb developed. It's obvious fero comes from the Greek verb phero, which means about the same thing. But I'm not quite sure where tuli and latus came from.

I think he's right though that unpopularity often ís a choice made by people who long for deeper contacts on the inside. I mean, being popular gives you so called "friends" and that's all based on appearances and stuff.

Same goes for Cicero, who's name can be pronounced as Kikero or Sisero, the latter being the more widely spread but not-classical way.

Yes, I don't know why you would be sin, unless you were doing a play on words. For "Forgive me father for I am sin", you could simply say mihi ignosce pater nam peccum sum .

Yes, it's a truely amazing piece of art, cadoro. Although I enjoy the Tristia more at the particular moment in time because of the way hexameters are followed by pentameters, the Metamorphoses truely are inspiring and beautiful. Fun too.

In our own languages we prolly chop up sentences too, only we do it so quickly we do not even notice anymore.
Latin needs to be chopped up so often because only the true literature and best texts were preserved (simpleness had no place then), which are the reason sentences are often so long.

Anyone? I have tried and I find it relatively easy although I'm not a 100% sure it's all correct. I once read the old poets wrote approx. one or two lines a day, and Ovid topped that in his best days with approx. seven or eight.
