Latin Quotes, Sayings, Tattoos, Phrases & Mottos

Most texts and materials on this site have to do with the Latin language, including its perception in popular culture: movies, tattoos, inscriptions, engravings, bits of ancient philosophy, online Latin resources and company names. There is also information about learning Latin and Greek: textbooks, dictionaries, DVDs and software that can be used in a homeschooling environment.


Is it possible to learn Latin language using an audio course?

Well, that depends on the course. There are a few options that one can very easily research on Amazon or wherever, but almost all of these audio courses must be used in conjunction with a textbook. I may write about these courses one day. However, it is not so widely known that the absolute best and most complete Latin language textbook exists on CD:

Latin: an intensive course /
Moreland, Floyd L.
University of California Press, 1990
RFB&D Product#: DT-HA037


RFB&D stands for "Recording for Blind & Dyslexic"

You need to be registered with RFB&D in order to order this book, but this must be a possibility, especially if you indeed are vision-impaired or dyslexic. Once again, this is simply the best Latin course that exists, in my opinion. I would not mind having a copy on CD. The grammar summary in the back of the book is truly superb.

Reading logs is like looking into people's minds. Sometimes it can be frightening, sometimes it is just funny. Yesterday someone searched Google for this: 'gen es se qua'. What does it mean? You got it: 'Je ne sais quoi'.

Idea for an engraved luggage tag

After hearing a few luggage related horror stories from people who had to return home during a recent storm, changing planes and arriving at otherwise undesirable destinations only to find out that their belongings did not make to anywhere near where they were supposed to be going, I got an idea for a luggage tag that would instill respect in all baggage-handlers:

Nemo me impune perdit! Nobody looses me unpunished!

This is, of course, inspired by the Scottish (among other adopters) motto:

Nemo me impune lacessit. Nobody provokes (harasses, challenges, attacks etc.) me unpunished.

Cunctis osculis placatus,
Haud blanditia orbatus,
Etiam toro sum vocatus -
Rursus volo vota dare
In perpetuum amare.
