"Summum bonum" (The highest good)

"Let war yield to peace, laurels to paeans."

"Laws are silent in time of war."

"Never less idle than when wholly idle, nor less alone than when wholly alone."

"Abiit, excessit, evasit, erupit." (He departed, he withdrew, he strode off, he broke forth.)

"Civis Romanus sum" (I am a Roman citizen)

"Quod di omen avertant" (May the gods avert this omen)

"Nervos belli, pecuniam infinitam" (The sinews of war, unlimited money)

Okay, Sorry about the Zues Zeus!  Hey, I can't help it!  It's "ue" in my last name, after all!  But there was no need to call me "Nerf"!  I may be squishy, but there's no need to call attention to it!  :p

Okay, well, you may not have thunk up these chicken nuggest of wisdom, but you sure served 'em up!  I'm just wondering where the sweet and sour sauce is???!!! ???  ???
