I'm the guy who posted a few threads ago about how I was freaking out about learning Latin for my master's degree. Whoever suggested switching to French, even though I have no background in it, may have actually saved my degree in the long-term. This is so much easier to read than Latin already, and the Latin that I did study, and do remember, is helping me out. I'm ordering French For Reading off of Amazon right now, and I've downloaded the Cosmopolite app on my phone. It's hard to describe why things feel easier. Maybe it's because this is a living language as opposed to a dead one. Regardless, I immediately feel more comfortable trying to read French than I ever have with Latin, despite studying Latin for years.

Exactly. He could have posted a picture of Stalin and it would have had the same effect. But Napoleon has the best line of them all:

"I found the crown of France lying in the gutter. I picked it up, with my own sword, and put it on my head."
