Cleos   fame, immortality through fame.       Generations of mortal are like leaves falling from a tree. You tread upon countless leaves. You don't look at them as individual leaves; shows insignificance. Diomedes’  aristia Passage where one character is the best; the best fighter, etc. Each character has one.  Books were originally referred to by events (ie: Hector’s death, or duel  of Menelaus & Hector).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
