Seeking Kleos

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 6:22 PM

Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, quoted in a webpage dated
October 7, 2014 (presumably according to Australian time):

"For the Athenians, kleos  mattered more than anything,
according to Goldstein.

'Kleos  is fame: it’s the deed that brings fame, it’s the poem
that sings your triumphs, it’s having your life replicated in
other minds, acquiring a kind of moreness, a kind of
secular immortality.' "

Broom Bridge Day

Wikipedia on Broom (or Broome, or Brougham) Bridge,
where on 16 October 1843 Hamilton discovered quaternions:

"The 16 October is sometimes referred to as
Broomsday (in reference to Broome Bridge)
and as a nod to the literary commemorations
on 16 June (Bloomsday in honour of James Joyce)."
