Being myself / No stranger to grief, I am learning to help the unhappy.

- Dido, The Aeneid, I:631-2

Trust not the horse, / You people of Teucria's land. Whatever it is, / I fear the Danaans, even when bearers of gifts.
- Lacoon, The Aeneid, II: 49-52

Just because it's good to know you've been misquoting it for years. At least, if you're me. And if 'thinking it in your head sometimes' counts as misquoting. And if you often said 'Romulans' instead of 'Greeks' anyway, in deference to Star Trek II.
