Not dead yet! Just napping!

I haven't been posting on this blog much recently, but that's only because I'm taking a little break to wrap up law school loose ends.

Like, for example, writing seminar papers. I finished one today, and I only have one more to go.

In the meantime, I've been thinking about adopting a Latin motto for myself. How about:

disce quasi semper victurus vive quasi cras moriturus: "Learn as if always going to live; live as if tomorrow going to die."

Some other candidates are:

  • hic sunt ursi "here there are bears"
  • cygnus inter anates "swan among ducks"
  • si peccasse negamus fallimur et nulla est in nobis veritas "if we refuse to make a mistake, we are deceived, and there's no truth in us"
  • quidquid Latine dictum sit altum viditur "whatever has been said in Latin seems deep"


Swan among ducks?

Hoe do you say "nonlinear" in Latin anyway?

I find it hard to improve upon "semper ubi sub ubi"

My personal favorite:

expressio unios est exclusio altinos

loosely translated as "expressing some is excluding others"
hmm... I wonder what would happen if I stated that slogan while walking into an establishment with the sign "no shirt no shoes no service"...without wearing any pants.

I vote for the first one!
