Panagiotis Soutsos, Nekrikos Dialogos “Rome, the ruler of the world, Rome Fell; but it was not resurrected. Greece, O Glory! Greece alone died and was reborn. For its future growth, it enjoys a hidden momentum, a secret impetus…It will regain, wise people, its ancient rank, once again the leader in every form of greatness and beauty. The centuries to come will see those that have passed, and our ancestors will be reborn anew in living men.”

Ruins of Ancient Sparta “You have matched us ancients in bravery of battle. Now match the old times in education and culture, too. Bring back to your land the days of Miltiades and Themistocles. Bring back the glorious days of Pericles for this rebirth. How long will there be enmities and disputes! From this time on let the only contention among you be rivalry for the national glory. And let the only contests that you have be those national games, the Olympics…

Ruins of Ancient Sparta …to which the olive branch once summoned the sons of Greece in ancient times. Greece your future is brilliant! In the old days, even when torn asunder by dissent, and divided into many kingdoms, you were the focal point. What will you now achieve united, marching forward under one king, with wise steps, giant steps, to your original glory?” Panagiotis Soutsos

    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.
