Thoughts on Herodotus, Book 4

12345One of the disadvantages of not knowing the language of the writer of this book is I don’t know when I’m reading Herodotus, or when I am reading the translator.  I don’t know if Herodotus made up the term, “It went in at the one ear and out of the other,” or if the translator just thought that the phrase would describe Herodotus’s point better than any other English expression.

I am ignorant but I keep learning, building and thinking for myself. Ironically, the more I learn, the more I realize just how ignorant I still am... Someday, I won't be ignorant anymore. I am a radical Conservative, Constitutionalist, and Libertarian.
