Dr. G. L. Irby

The Learning of Greek and Latin, I am told, is going into disuse in Europe. I know not what their manners and occupations may call for: but it would be very ill-judged in us to follow their example in this instance.
--Thomas Jefferson [notes on the state of Virginia, 1781]

I would make them all learn English: and then I would let the clever ones learn Latin as an honor, and Greek as a Treat.
--Sir Winston Churchill [Roving Commission: My Early Life]
