Thanks for the comprehensive message, which contains both a reading plan for
attacking non-NT Greek and lots of good general advice for improving Greek
reading skills. This is *extremely* helpful. I'm saving it, since I think
I'll be looking at it from time to time over the next few years (e.g., when
I finish reading something).

I like and appreciate the Greek proverb, but I'm afraid I don't know *any*
Latin. Could I beg for a translation?

Very much so!
