    Smile meaning

    When the first Olympic Games began in Greece in 776 B.C., something within the human spirit was tapped.
    What is the meaning of the last part?

    Wherever did you get that idea It means that something that was present in the human spirit but unexpressed became visible. (I suppose that 'something' might have been excitement, but I doubt it ) And why do you use the emoticon that suggests shock - are you shocked at his or her failure to know something that you've misunderstood?
