Quote of the Day

Heraclitus by Johannes Moreelse circa 1630
It is difficult to fight against anger, for a man will buy revenge with his soul. Heracleitus, 500 B.C.
Found on The Abode of McThag, via View From The Porch.


Looking for a picture of Heracleitus (a.k.a. "the weeping philosopher") I stumbled on this. I don't know where they got this accent or this pronounciation, but it doesn't sound anything like I would pronounce it, but then I'm part neanderthal, so what do I know?

The Greeks in Tarpon would agree that is the modern pronunciation.

Hair A Kly Tus is how I think the ancient Greek is supposed to be.

Would that be Tarpon Springs, Florida? Or is there some other Tarpon of which Google is not aware?
