Vox Audita Perrit, Literra Scripta Manet....
The heard word is lost, the written letter remains...
There's nothing Nietzsche couldn't teach ya 'bout the raising of the wrist...
Yes, I am having way too much fun with this icon thing. Damn you, Derek Jacobi. There was a time when I liked John Hurt more than you. I may have to fix that and go and see Hurt's latest film, 'The Proposition'.

Also working on my 'Last Temptation' paper. And watching this stupid Helen of Troy thing. Rufus Sewell is playing Agamemnon, and looks utterly repulsive. However, James Callis (Dr Gaius!) is playing Menelaus, and looks ridiculously pretty. I knew there'd be some minor consolation in watching this.

I went into the city yesterday to pick up my miraculously literal translation of Virgil's Aeneid. $16 dollars at Archives! It's the one our second lecturer Denis has been using, and someone has helpfully written notes in the margins. Score!

While clutching my treasure on the bus home, I noticed the guy I was sitting next to on the bus was reading a book, one of the chapters of which was titled 'How to develop faith'. A little nosey of me, yes, but I'm curious as to how one develops faith (in anything, whether it be a god/goddess, a person, an object, etc.). Can you be instructed in how to develop faith? Can it even be written in a book? Or is it something you have to find without instruction?

Bah, it's Saturday night. I shouldn't be thinking this deep on the weekend. Back to the (relatively) easy debate of historical Jesus versus Biblical Jesus. And Nikos Kazantzakis' Niezschean influences.

Current Mood: working working

These are natural feelings, Steph. Don't fight them. Let the love of Derek shine in your heart.
