Can anyone think of any witty or inspirational Latin phrases? I have a Latin phrase project. I googled Latin phrases, but a lot of phrases are modern day ones, only in Latin. For my project, they must be ancient Latin phrases (or at least appear that way). Thank you.
Perhaps there are some in this Search that you have not yet seen:
There's a wonderful little book originally printed in 1960 called Winnie Ille Pu by A. A. Milne, translated by Alexander Lenard. There's LOTS of wit in there!
It's not ancient Latin, but it's very faithfully translated into classical Latin by Lenard. See if you can find this in your library or bookstore. It's great fun!
If you can find anything by the playwright Plautus, you'll "hit a gold mine"!!
Here is what my "google" came up with
and do not forget the universal motherly advise...
Semper ubi sub ubi.
