…self-regard, you don't have to look very much further than the name we've given ourselves. (My Latin is a little rough, but Homo sapiens basically translates as "clever man.") We see ourselves largely in terms of our knowing; our place in the natural order of things is at the top, as the ones who have it figured out. And it's pretty obvious, too, that it was a biologist who got to do this naming because the name reflects our conception of ourselves as knowers and understanders …
…"Gladiator's" main character. " Optimus Maximus," for those who do not speak Latin, literally translates to " Big Daddy."
Jupiter had a long, flowing beard and a bicycle he called " Tiffany." His prize-winning topiaries were the envy of all the Romans. Jupiter perfected a recipe for Buffalo chicken. "It's the breading!" He used to proclaim.

…continents. I will be thankful for the libraries of this city that saved so many Greek and Latin manuscripts that would have otherwise been victim to mass-destruction in western Europe and north Africa. I will explore the spice bazaar and Hagia Sophia and mosques and the last stop on the silk road (the Grand Bazaar).
And when I return home, with a new wardrobe (which may or may not include a few new pairs of shoes), a rested and rejuvenated soul, an inspired heart, and a new vocabulary …
