I should probably translate some Greek to stay in shape but I don't know what to translate.

What about... Euthyphro?

I really enjoyed some bits of St. John of Damascus' Sacra Parallela. There's plenty of topics in there to choose from. Also, it's quite straightforward Greek.

Isn't that one fragmentary? All-knowing TLG tells me it is.

The fragment I liked from Sacra Parallela is actually from Chrysostom's In Eutropium. Beautiful stuff!

Quite bad news from a woman very close to me. You can light a candle if you feel so inclined.
She hears, upon that water without sound,
A voice that cries, “The tomb in Palestine
Is not the porch of spirits lingering.
It is the grave of Jesus, where he lay.”
We live in an old chaos of the sun,
Or old dependency of day and night,
Or island solitude, unsponsored, free,
Of that wide water, inescapable.

EDIT: Ayn Rand deserves some very high mention.
I strongly dislike Ayn Rand and disagree with Penn Jillette (sorry 'bout the mispelling) on just about anything, but I like how he thinks through what he says before he says it and isn't afraid to disagree with others who he may have much in common with.  He says what he thinks and lets the chips fall where they may.
