another one of my heady postings lol

Looking darkly upon Hector,swift footed Achillies answered,"I cannot forgive you, as there are no trustworthy oath's between men and lions,there can be no love between you and me.One or the other must fall before then ,to glut with his blood Aries who fights under a shields guard.Remember every valor of yours,for now the need comes hardest upon you to be a spearman and a bold warrior.There shall be no escape for you ,you will pay in a lump for all those sorrows of my companions you killed in your spears fury"



Just brining you the classsics

So who can tell me were this is from? and who wrote it?
nice little quiz.

Yep, if you don't care, no need to respond that way. Just because you don't, doesn't mean no one does.

Anyway, the answer is:
Line 260+, Book XXII, The Iliad of Homer

It's something that was written by Homer (the writer, of course), Kate. There were other translators of course, such as Samuel Butler. I knew it because I've read it before, and I thought I knew the answer so I looked it up, and was right.

KATE! I'm shocked! It's a classic! I'm surprised you have not read this book in one of your English classes....

*shakes my cane at you*

Well done Zoe I woul have hoped others would have not resorted to google(I guess I was hoping some had read it and remembered reading it ,or It would spur others to actually read a book or a short story)We as a planet are forgetting some of the greatest written works.Every generation that comes after us looses more than we have and so on and so on.I fear that one day all the past will be forgotten.


Oh and as a point mykee I CARE what more is there to say?
