Salvete! Nomen mihi Bastian est, et linguam Latinam disco. Potestis me iuvare?
I am having trouble with the first part of this sentence from my textbook:
Non solum eventus hoc docet - iste est magister stultorum! - sed etiam ratio.
Hoc and solum are both neuter, so I think they go together. Eventus is nominative and thus ought to be the subject of the verb, but I cannot get the phrase to make sense in my translation.
Please let me know where I'm going wrong! Thanks.
