congratulations, graduates

Here's some great news from George Orwell:
"You forget your Latin and Greek within a few months of leaving school -- I studied Greek for eight or ten years, and now, at thirty-three, I cannot even repeat the Greek alphabet." George Orwell, The Road to Wigan Pier 137 (1958) (as quoted in W.F. Bolton, The Language of 1984 20 (1984)).
