Pale death knocks with impartial foot at poor men's hovels and king's palaces. -Pallida Mors Pale Death
Horatius (65 - 8 BC)
Contributed by: Zaady
When discord dreadful bursts her brazen bars, And shatters locks to thunder forth her wars.
What has this unfeeling age of ours left untried, what wickedness has it shunned?
A word once let out of the cage cannot be whistled back again.
What forbids a laughing man from telling the truth? -Ridentem dicere verum quid vetat?
While we talk, hostile time flies away. - Dum loquimur invida aetas fugerit.

It is sweet and glorious to die for one's country. -Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori
Happy the man, and happy he alone, He who can call today his own; He who secure within can say: Tomorrow do thy worst, for I have lived today.
