"...into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day."

"This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the South with. With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation...

" I would have been victorious with the death of so many criminals who were still citizens or I would have fallen with the Republic following the death of so many good people, something those criminals wished for most.” https://t.co/SJM239SH6G via @sentantiq

We can't really think of many people to get Inside Culture with than Mary Beard. Here she chats with our Hannah about why succession is always a fraught and dangerous time, how society deals with "the losers" and the latest series of her BBC show. https://t.co/GVFqmQEh0U https://t.co/EhJx71yDDM

The Greek poetry is so melodic & lovely.
Some weird Classics professor once told me that Ancient Greek was so melodic & the Greeks lost that melody. He clearly did not speak Greek nor had ever read actual Greek poetry & had his head stuck in a Loeb book. https://t.co/sZPtqFYCVS

Harpsichord. I do not know what this piece is called because Robert Littman plunked it in front of me and said it’s easy to sight read, so I tried it. 😁 https://t.co/r1Fg8DD2Hj

Littman Suite 1, by Nikos Xanthoulis. That’s my friend Robert Littman (yep, it was made for him)playing the cello. We’re just jamming. Nikos plays this louder. That’s a custom harpsichord in the background and it’s fun to play! 😁 https://t.co/15qChGuBvG

The value of performing is in meeting people before and after, exchanging ideas, or just listening to their lectures. (These are AIA @archaeology_aia @uhmclassics people here— Floyd McCoy, Chelsea Gardner, @archaeoctopus Robert Littman, Turi King @Turi__King ) 3/4 https://t.co/wgTP9vEb4K
