Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Proverbs 124. The proverb today is \"Beware Greeks
Bearing Gifts. \" Bearing gifts you know, giving gifts, having gifts. All right. So
let's continue. This is a quote from Aeneid in Latin. And this is the actual
Latin quote \"Timeo Danaos et Dona Ferantes. \" which nowadays basically is rephrased to
Beware Greeks bearing gifts. Yeah. The Danaos that was actually the
old name for Greeks et is always and Dona is giving So I guess the ferantes
must be gifts. All right. Anyway let's continue. The origin of this proverb comes directly
from Greek mythology. Okay. It directly relates to the story of the Greeks
tricking the Trojans by building a large horse in order to find a way into the
city of Troy. Because they had a lot of it blocked off. This was
actually a long war they were fighting this war already for about nine years.
And they had to they had to figure out a way to really get in there to really
defeat you know the Trojans basically. So it directly relates to the story of the
Greeks tricking the Trojans by building a large horse, you know , in order to find a
way into the city. The idea was for the Greeks through sail away and pretend
they were giving up in defeat leaving behind an offering. You know a gift and
offering for a safe journey home. So don't follow us and try to you know,
continue to fight us. We're leaving now. We're giving up. We're tired after
nine years. We're going home. Of course this was nothing but a ruse. A ruse you
know, trick. The Greeks had their best soldiers hiding in the horse as the
offering was thought to be a gift it was brought into the city. When night came
the Warriors snuck out of the horse and could do a surprise sneak attack
when most Trojan warriors were sleeping. So they were actually to you know able
to attack them and kind of kill a lot even you know as they were waking up. So
they were able to really make you know it's a good attack on them to, to beat
the Trojans. Okay good. And of course so we just give you an
example of how we might use this today. So somebody might say. Isn't , isn't he
your enemy. It doesn't make any sense that he would offer this to you. That he would
give this to you. My advice to you ... my advice is beware Greeks bearing gifts.
So the same sort of idea. That must be a trick. This is too good to be true.
Something seems wrong. Enemies don't usually do this. So be very very careful.
Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time.
Bye-bye.
