Re: Cool Latin Quotes
Qui desiderat pacem, praeparet bellum
I'm a fan of latin quotes, but I don't know many so please help me out
Sic vis pacem, para bellum (sik vis paw kem, para bellum)
"If you want peace, prepare for war"
A maxim often paraphrased as "Si vis pacem, para bellum
." The eminently reasonable philosophy that ,"If you would have peace, prepare for war." The English version is often back-rendered as "Si vis pacem, para bellum." This sentiment is attributed to Flavius Vegetius Renatus, who wrote in the "De re militari" (390 B.C.E.): "Qui desiderat pacem, bellum praeparat; nemo provocare ne offendere audet quem intelliget superiorem esse pugnaturem
". (Whosoever desires peace prepares for war; no one provokes, nor dares to offend, those who they know know to be superior in battle.)
