“There are some students who fall in love with the tidings of Latin morphology and the exquisite logic of many grammatical instructions, but these same students, when they first confront the nuances and complexities and ambiguities of literary texts ... become frustrated and disappointed: How can a language that makes so much sense be used to make such little sense?”

“the formal study of the grammar of one’s first language is largely descriptive rather than prescriptive—not learning how to say things, but rather why we say them as we do.”
Peter L Corrigan, A Student Handbook of Latin and English Grammar

“To read the Latin and Greek authors in their original is a sublime luxury…. I thank on my knees him who directed my early education for having in my possession this rich source of delight; and I would not exchange it for anything which I could then have acquired, & have not since acquired” (Thomas Jefferson in a letter to Dr. Joseph Priestley, January 27, 1800).”
