: I had been searching for the answer to the same question posed at http://www.phrases.org.uk/bulletin_board/32/messages/1052.html for a long time.
: An answer was posted at http://members2.boardhost.com/hgwt/msg/2995.html.
: in response to my inquiry that I think covers it.
Given the fleeting nature of Internet links it might be useful if you could summarise the gist of the orignial question and post it. I'd do it myself, but I'm not sure whether the answer to the questions is Herodotus or Gene Roddenberry since there is some question about the translation of the possible quote sited in Heroditus.
Thanks for following up.
