Two Pictures From Greece

"Greece leaves behind catastrophic austerity, it leaves behind fear and authoritarianism, it leaves behind five years of humiliation and anguish."

Alexis Tsipras

"I have nothing to ask except that you move aside, so that you may not, by blocking the sunlight, steal from me what you cannot give."


Therese Duncan, Reaching Arms, The Parthenon, 1921 

"Until now we used to say that the Greeks fight like heroes.
Now we shall say: That heroes fight like Greeks."  Winston Churchill
