That is probably why we seldom write great tributes to it, as the ancients did.) To solve this translation problem, it may be necessary to insist on using the Greek word instead of any of the misleading English translations, even at the risk of sounding snobbish or scholarly, so that we do not confuse this most important thing in the world with something else in our minds, and consequently risk missing it in our lives.There is enormous misunderstanding and confusion about it today.I live in Toronto, but love NYC like no other and dream of living there.
