The whole thing about Greek food is simplicity. From the lemons and the olive oil to the greens, its brilliant.
Jamie Oliver

I found the most fantastic food in Greece, food that I say rivals the best cuisines in the world.

There is no American reason why the Turks should not have one-third of Cyprus.
Henry Kissinger
U.S. Secretary of State (1974)
I'm here in Cyprus representing the United States and I am accredited as Ambassador to the Republic of Cyprus. The Republic of Cyprus is essentially the Greek Cypriot portion of the island and that Republic of Cyprus is recognized by all of the members of the United Nations with the exception of Turkey. Turkey has recognized a government which has been established in the north of the island which is called the Turkish Federated State of Cyprus and Turkey has their Ambassador in the north. No other Ambassador is resident there except the Turkish Ambassador.

I haven’t read Into the Pagan Past yet, but I plan on doing so as soon as I return from Thermopylae. I promise.
Leonidas
Spartan King
While not nearly as vast and all-encompassing as my own great historical work, Into the Pagan Past was certainly more entertaining than that long-winded tome by that dullard Thucydides.
Herodotus
Father of History
Wh-what? Hey!! While my narrative may be long-winded, at least it was meticulously researched, entirely factual, and not prone to wild speculations of fantasy. Flying snakes indeed!!! (In response to Herodotus' testimonial on the book, Into the Pagan Past)
Thucydides
The Peloponnesian Wars
Submit to my will or be swept away by my vast and powerful armies! (Speaking about the book, Into the Pagan Past.)
Xerxes
King of kings and ruler of the mighty Persian Empire
The more I imbibe in the grape, the funnier the book Into the Pagan Past becomes!
Dionysus
God of Wine
Pitiful, simply pitiful! (Speaking about the comedic Travel History book, Into the Pagan Past)
Homer
Epic Poet
Hence, we will not say that Greeks fight like heroes, but that heroes fight like Greeks.
Winston Churchill
Former Prime Minister of England during World War 2
The Greeks delayed by two or more vital months the German attack against Russia; if we did not have this long delay, the outcome of the war would have been different.
Hitler's Chief of Staff
[We] thank the Greek People, whose resistance decided WWII...You fought unarmed and won, small against big...You gave us time to defend ourselves.
Joseph Stalin
Just been to see the sequel to 300, over acted, over hyped, over exaggerated, over everything and a plot that was childish. My partner said it was so bad it made 300 look good, and we thought that was also over everything and childish as well. Think I will watch The First War for Western Civilization. I'm sure it gives a better idea of what happened during the Greco-Persian Wars.
Penny Bowen
Thank you so much for the wonderful work CelebrateGreece.com does for promoting Greece in the world.

The comedic, history-travel book Into the Pagan Past: A Search for Gods, Heroes and a Really Good Greek Salad may be history lite, but it is continually entertaining without realizing it is educational as well.

Very good! Nice balance of information and interest. Definitely can see The First War for Western Civilization running on The History Channel one day, hopefully soon.

Watched it twice, worth every cent.
