For a long time I rotated a series of Latin phrases as my email signature. Most people never asked what the phrases meant or why I’d included one. But I did it because interdum stultus opportuna loquitur. Here are a few good ones you can use:
- populus me sibilat, at mihi plaudo
Who cares what people say?
- in vota miseros ultimus cogit timor
There are no atheists in foxholes.
- compendia dispendia
Shortcuts usually take longer in the end.
- imitatores, servum pecus
Don’t be a copycat.
- quod sentimus loquamar, quod loquimur sentiamus
Say what you mean; Mean what you say.
