Students should NOT endeavor to learn the complexities of ancient Greek

1. If the student's principal purpose is to get to know 'Her' better.

2. If the student believes that s/he might get more conversions by means of
flashy 'Greek' rhetoric.

3. If the student believes that a god or gods will help them achieve what
only can be achieved through hard academic perseverance.
