“What mostly happens in the Iliad is that Achilles has a hissy fit because Agamemnon has stolen a slave girl of his, sulks in his tent for eight books and spends the ninth telling Agamemnon he’s had enough and he’s going home.”
Caroline Taggart, A Classical Education: The Stuff You Wish You'd Been Taught in School

“As far as I’m concerned, whom is a word that was invented to make everyone sound like a butler.’ CALVIN TRILLIN”
Caroline Taggart, My Grammar and I (Or Should That Be 'Me'?): Old-School Ways to Sharpen Your English

“Accents must have been pretty important in Ancient Greek, because a man called Herodian wrote a treatise in twenty-one books about them, most of which, you’ll be happy to know, are now lost.”

“By the time you swear you're his,
Shivering and sighing.
And he vows his passion is,
Infinite, undying.
Lady make note of this --
One of you is lying.”
Dorothy Parker
