I told you already that we love quotes, sayings or other meaningful sentences and that there will be a quote on the other side of our coin. So here is the cointest:

 

- post your favorite quotes, sayings and other meaningful sentences

- only one post per day per participant

- the cointest ends on the day when we have the samples in our hand

- at the end of the cointest my daughter will pick the winner randomly

- the winner will get one of our coins

- in case someone posts the quote that we used for the backside of the coin he will also win one of our coins

 

Good luck to everybody

Thomas

 

OK...here is a quote of mine. Please note that it is made tongue-in-cheek. That is to say, I am not a violent man, and this is not an honestly hostile statement.

 

Mikal 3:16 - Mock not, lest ye be punched in the face.

I will post an ancient quote you probably all know!!! it is one of the strongest quotes and quite famous!!!

 

Η ΤΑΝ Ή ΕΠΙ ΤΑΣ (means... with it or on it)

 

In case someone doesn't know its story.... this is a Spartan Quote! mothers or wifes used to tell that to their men or sons, or brothers when they were leaving for a war! the worst thing as a soldier was to drop your shield and run away! you were the black sheep for the rest of your time! nobody wanted you!! your family was ashamed too! So...

 

remember.... when a soldier... a hero, a high ranked was killed... there was a battle around him to save his body and his weapons!!! remeber Heliad?? ;)

 

Death with honor was something that soldiers wanted! heroism and honor were the things that could give make them famous even after death! So to drop your shield and run away was worse than to die!!!

 

the quote means... come back carring your shield or come back on your shield... as a dead but honored!!!

an other very famous quote from ancient greece.....

 

ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ

 

King Leonidas of Sparta said that in Thermopyles when the messengers of the Persian army told to Spartans to surrender their weapons to Xerxes king of Persia!

 

The free translation is.... Come and get them... meaning.... if you dare... come! after that... the battle of Thermopylew started! A glorius battle full of Heroism!!

"Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt."

- Special Olympics athlete oath

 

Special Olympics is for intellectually handicapped athletes. World Summer Games start in two days, with 7.500 very special athletes from 185 countries.

 

:laughing: I was saving that for the day the Special Olympics will start, but I am so happy that you posted it! :D

Just to add... the Special Olympics are in Athens, and the last place that the olympic flame will visit before it ends in Kallimarmaro stadium... is Rhodes!!! :D

"They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa,

They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa.

To the happy home. With trees and flowers and chirping birds and basket

weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes and they're

coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!! " - Napolean XIV
