King Charles' motto

Not talking about any historic King Charles here, but rather about the British musician whose stage name betrays his royal aspirations (actually, this makes me wonder whether England has any laws that discourage individuals who call themselves kings or queens). King Charles was part of the opening act during the recent Mumford & Sons tour. Did a pretty nice job, I think. On his MySpace site there is a header with a Latin motto: In mundo, sed non de mundo. - In the world, but not of the world. Note the distinct Christian connotations. Just another idea for someone researching Latin quotes for tattoos, mottos and what have you.

By the way, if anyone finds King Charles' mp3s for sale other than the EP entitled "Alone on the throne", I'd like to know about that.

Among a very entertaining collection of actual Norse runic love quotes there is one that comes from Virgil, the famous "Love conquers all":



omnia:uinci:am(or)::nos:cedamus:amor(i)
Omnia vincit amor, et nos cedamus amori
Love conquers all; let us too yield to love.

I don't know what time the original inscription is attributed to, but the entire corpus is from 1150-1350. The discovery was made in Bergen, Norway.

Symbola et Emblemata: Quod facile emergit, non est durabile

 
I am going to post a series of pictures from a French book entitled "Emblesmes d'Amour". As one might guess, the book contains short love quotes along with with engravings full of symbolism. Brief interpretative discussions also follow, but I've decided to leave them out for now.

Quod facile emergit, non est durabile
That which emerges easily, is not durable
