    “Greeks–! so educated and versatile– a Greek can convince you he’s a schoolteacher, a rhetorician, a mathematician, a painter, an augur, a magician; tell a Greek to fly, and he’ll rise up in the air!
    They are also diplomatic, which according to Juvenal is a bad thing. “They’re alway sucking up to people; if you say “I’m hot,” he’ll start sweating. . .” Successful merchants? Kill a Greek, he’ll rise out of his grave to sell you his shroud. . . “
