nCanít we just study
roots, prefixes and
nThe real reason to study Latin is to
read what people who lived
before us wrote, in their own
words, expressing their own
thoughts and emotions in
exactly their own way.
nōdī et amō. quārē id faciam, fortasse
n†††† nescio, sed fierī
sentiō et excrucior.
Latin is useless, then so is J.K. Rowling
or Stephen King. And so is
popular music, which many of us
could not live without. The mind
and soul need to be fed constantly,
authors need to speak to us
whether its from 2000 miles away
or 2000 years away.
