Greek is a Given!

“Greek, then, is a postulate not further to be disputed. The problem is not whether Greek is worth while, but Greek being given, what is the best way of connecting it with the life of today? For the teacher, for the learner, the problem is how to teach, how to learn Greek so as to make it a part, or, if you choose, recognize it as a part of the moral and intellectual life of our time.”

-Basil L. Gildersleeve, The Channels of Life
