Greek Quote Widget for Mac OS X Dashboard

As we use a Mac at our house, I'm always pleased to find Greek-related software that doesn't need to run on Windows (although I do work with it when necessary). I always find quotations interesting, and especially when I can relate them to foreign language study. So I was especially pleased to find this little program on Apple's website.

The widget displays a random quote in both English and Greek. I don't know if it will have any ancient quotations (just found and installed it yesterday), but it will, I'm sure, give some useful insights into Greek culture. Here's a sample from the download page for the widget: "A bad workman always blames his tools."—ο κακός τεχνίτης κατηγορεί πάντα τα εργαλεία του.

The widget runs both on Intel Macs and the older PowerPC ones and requires OS X 10.4 or later. You can get it here: ... uotes.html
