Pigless Latin

A man who does not understand Latin is like one who walks through a beautiful region in a fog; his horizon is very close to him; he sees only the nearest things clearly, and a few steps away from him, the outlines of everything become indistinct or wholly lost. But the horizon of the Latin scholar extends far and wide through the centuries of modern history, Middle Ages and antiquity.

-Arthur Schopenhauer
