"Moreover, you scorned our people, and compared the Albanese to sheep, and according to your custom think of us with insults. Nor have you shown yourself to have any knowledge of my race. Our elders were Epirotes, where this Pirro came from, whose force could scarcely support the Romans. This Pirro, who Taranto and many other places of Italy held back with armies. I do not have to speak for the Epiroti. They are very much stronger men than your Tarantini, a species of wet men who are born only to fish. If you want to say that Albania is part of Macedonia I would concede that a lot more of our ancestors were nobles who went as far as India under Alexander the Great and defeated all those peoples with incredible difficulty. From those men come these who you called sheep. But the nature of things is not changed. Why do your men run away in the faces of sheep?"
Letter from Skanderbeg to the Prince of Taranto ▬ Skanderbeg, October 31 1460

Légendes et mythes albanais


Post by CERMENIKASI » Sun Sep 08, 2013 10:05 pm

Une légende - il y a beaucoup de légendes dans le pays --
veut que le Tomor renferme dans ses flancs le tombeau de
Jupiter, le roi des dieux. Quand il tonne sur le Tomor, c'est
Jupiter qui gronde. Le « Baba Tomor (traduisez le « Père Tomor »)
crie et tonne » disent les Albanais. Un juron fréquent est le sui-
vant : Per Baba Tomor, ce qui veut dire « Par le Père Tomor ».
