-> ''We should give thanks to Greece. It's the West that has a debt in relation to Greece. Philosophy, democracy, tragedy...The technological world in which we live owes everything to Greece. Who invented logic? Creator/{{Aristotle}}...So today the whole world owes Greece money. Greece could ask the contemporary world for one trillion copyrights, and it would only be logical to turn them over to it.''
-->-- '''Creator/JeanLucGodard'''

* '''Giannis Antetokounmpo''' (b 1994), rising [[UsefulNotes/NationalBasketballAssociation NBA]] star with the Milwaukee Bucks; in 2017, he became the first player ever to finish a season in the league's top 20 in [[MasterOfAll points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocked shots]]. If the last name doesn't sound Greek to you, that's because he's the Greek-born son of UsefulNotes/{{Nigeria}}n immigrants.
