something new

i started a journey of collecting little latin (and occassionally french) phrases last night

reading them in size 8 font on yellowed pages in the dead of the night is a rather therapeutic experience

here’s my favourites so far:

a posse ad esse – from the possible to the actual 
contra mundum – against the world
(french) boutez en avant – push forward
