    Καλησπέρα παιδιά θα ήθελα αν γινόταν κάποιος να μου μεταφράσει μια πρόταση που είναι στα αγγλικά σε αρχαία ελληνικά. "i may not be there yet but i'm closer than i was yesterday" ευχαριστώ πολύ !

    Hi, Parevale! I see that no one has responded to your query yet. Maybe it would help if you gave a little more context. For example, is this referring to saving a certain amount of money to buy, say, a new car? If so, then maybe someone could translate "Φασούλι το φασούλι γεμίζει το σακούλι" into Ancient Greek for you. If it is referring to more than saving money, for example, coming closer to getting a promotion or becoming fluent in another language, then maybe there's another proverb that is more suitable. Anyone?

    Καίτοι ουκ εκεί έτι αφίχθην, σήμερον εγγύτερον ειμί ή χθές.

    αφίχθην is pseudo-ancient; it should be ἀφικόμην, or better yet ἀφῖγμαι (with a circumflex).
    Οὔπω μὲν ἀφῖγμαι, ὁσημέραι δ' ἥκω would be my suggestion -- but I am not a classicist.
