A moto for the new course

old quarter street in Corfu

Marika's new post with the videos of Cavafi's poem have brought to my mind a souvenir of my summer holidays. I visited in Corfu the house of Dionysos Solomos, another great Greek poet , which has been made a museum. In the exhibition I came across a line of his works which touched me . It was this:

Συχνά τά στήθη εκούρασα,
ποτέ την καλοσύνη
My chest often got tired,
never my kindness

I pass it to you because I think it is a nice line to spread in European classrooms and as a kind of present for you all in these busy days of the beginning of the school year.
