Por que estudar os clássicos?

Talvez a melhor resposta que eu já vi:
I studied Latin in high school, private (Jesuit) school of course. I and a friend actually used the first few lines of the Aeneid to get out of a traffic ticket in high school! The judge was an old curmudgeon who asked if they still made us study Latin, so we immediately launched into the Aeneid. This obviously impressed the judge that we were good students and maybe OK kids, so he let us off with an slap on thewrist.
