If You Really Want To Leave A Lasting Impression, Read This

As most of you already know, my family motto is on the family Coat of Arms in Latin. Latin is a classy language that, when quoted, instantly catapults you to regal stature. I have taken the liberty of supplying some Latin phrases (many ala tall) for your usage. Oh, my family motto...Carpe diem secundum cras. Basically this reflects my outlook...the translation..."seize the day after tomorrow."

Here are the classics that reflect the thought process long ago. Later on you'll find more usable stuff.

1. Fiat justitia; ruat coelum.
2. Ars longa, vita brevis.
3. Difficile est satiram non scribere.
4. Amor vincit omnia.
5. Adversus solem ne loquitur.
6. Veritas vos liberabit.
7. Beneficium accipere libertatem est vendere.
8. Bonum vinum laetificat cor hominis.
9. Aut viam inveniam aut faciam.
10. Vinct qui se vincit.

1. Let justice be done though heaven fall.
2. Art is long; life is short.
3. It is difficult not to write satire.
4. Love conquers all things.
5. Don’t speak against the sun.
6. The truth will set you free.
7. To accept a favor is to sell one’s freedom.
8. Good wine gladdens a man’s heat.
9. I will either find a way or make one.
10. He conquers who conquers himself.

1. Nemo liber est qui copori servit.
2. Radix omnium malorum est cupiditas.
3. Sumptus censum ne superet.
4. Sum amicus humani generis.
5. Docendo discimus.
6. Donec eris felix, multos numerabus amicos.
7. Fabas indulcet fames.
8. Fortiter in re, suaviter in modo.
9. Praemonitus praemunitus.
10. Omnia mutantur nos et mutamur in illis.

1. No one is free who is a slave to his body.
2. Greed is the root of all evil.
3. Let not your spending exceed your income.
4. I am a friend of the human race.
5. We learn by teaching.
6. As long as you are fortunate, you will have many friends.
7. Hunger sweetens the beans.
8. Resolutely in action, gently in manner.
9. Forewarned is forearmed.
10. All things change, and we change with them.

1. Illud Latine dici non potest.
2. Flexilis sum, gluten es, me resilit, ad te haeret!
3. In tabulario donationem feci.
4. In catillo est, cibus esse debet.
5. Pistrix! Pistrix!
6. Ego te demitto.
7. Ecce pactum. Id cape aut id relinque.
8. Noli perturbare.
9. Noli intrare.
10. Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

1. You can’t say that in Latin.
2. I am rubber, you are glue, bounces off me, sticks to you!
3. I gave at the office.
4. It’s on a plate; it must be food.
5. Shark! Shark!
6. You’re fired.
7. That’s the deal. Take it or leave it.
8. Do not disturb.
9. Keep out.
10. Thank you for not smoking.

1. Mehercle, qui dies!
2. Aliquid ardet!
3. Ausculta mihi! Tibi dico!
4. Prospice tibi -- ut Gallia, tu quoque in tres partes dividaris.
5. Quid me appellavisti?
6. Foras gradiamur.
7. Bene, cum Latine nescias, nolo manus meas in te maculare.
8. Occasio rarissima est.
9. Si fractum non sit, noli id reficere.
10. Minime senuisti!

1. Sheesh, what a day!
2. Something’s burning!
3. Pay attention! I’m talking to you!
4. Watch out -- You might end up divided into three parts, like Gaul.
5. What did you call me?
6. Let’s step outside.
7. Well, if you don’t understand plain Latin, I’m not going to dirty my hands on you.
8. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
9. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
10. You haven’t aged a bit!

A Latin bumper sticker maybe;
Cum catapultae proscriptae erunt tum soli proscript catapultas habebunt!

When catapults are outlawed, only outlaws will have catapults!

OK, one more;
Vestri penis servo haud voluntas.

Your penis serves no purpose.

And you thought I wasn't a class act. Shame on you.

PC remember the Latin Club in high school? Sum servus. & the old standby...Latin is a dead language...dead as dead can be. First it killed the Romans...now it's killing me. I didn't really like Latin.

The most famous classic Latin quote is (by Julius Caesar):

Veni, vidi, vici

I came, I saw, I conquered

In 47 BC, having decisively defeated the king of Pontus, Pharnaces II, at Zela (in Asia Minor), the victorious Caesar announced his triumph in Rome: Veni, vidi, vici
