Latin Phrases

Here are a bunch of Latin phrases for you! They are just great for layout titles or subtitles! I saw a bunch of layouts with little Latin scripts and I thought, why not start a mini Latin phrase dictionary? Besides, even Angelina Jolie has a Latin tatoo on her baby bump. ^ ^

Oh yeah, I'm learning Latin at school. *_* So if you want a GOOD translation (not from crappy sites you find on Google) just contact me, okay?
