NOTES: The code is geared towards showing more rather than fewer results, with the understanding that many people are just trying to find a Latin phrase to suit their needs. Make sure to select the correct language for your search. For some literary quotes the author's name is included in the field with the English translation. Therefore searching for "Ovid" will produce some results, however more work is needed in this direction. If you want to copy the text, click on the entry in the list and the complete Latin phrase with translation will be shown in the box below where it can be selected and copied.

The database is easily updatable, so please do not hesitate to send in corrections and additions. And, of course, you need Flash.
