That's an epic line from 300. I watch like 300 movies a week, your mod allusions aren't going to fool me.

AH! Got me!!

Something to do with sweet (dulce = sweet)

Also it is either a poem or movie, going off the pattern.

This one is a poem by Wilfred Owen in 1917 during the first world war. What's with the poems? :?:

We shall fight on beaches, landing grounds, in fields, in streets and on the hills. We shall never surrender.

I see the parallels. I think I'm starting to get what's going on. Just need a different clue and I think I'll put it together. I'm not going to post my analysis...yet.

You don't need to post any more epic lines, I understand their connection.

This is part of Winston Churchill's speech during WWII.

Not sure if this is supposed to be an individual task or a group effort. But I do see a theme.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Re: confuse ramned thread

Postby owenshooter on Sat Feb 14, 2009 1:42 am

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
