Lieberman, Samuel Why Study Classical Languages?

Then there was the lady from the tour group in Greece to which I was lecturing
who asked at Mycenae or Knossos or Athens,  "When do we get to the Elysian Fields?"
When I had her repeat the question and realized she was serious, I took the opportunity
to explain that one had to be dead to get there.
