Here's one,

Sic vis pacem, para bellum (sik vis paw kem, para bellum)

"If you want peace, prepare for war"


Qui desiderat pacem, praeparet bellum
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.)

The actual spelling for that latin quote is, "Sic Vis Pacis, Para Bellum"
I believe it is that because i tried checking up the spelling of that quote and that is what came up. I used a English-Latin Latin-English Translator.
If I'm wrong, I'm sorry to have wasted your time.

Actually that quote should be

"Si velis pacem, para bellum"

It needs the subjunctive form of volo because it's a conditional clause.

I have always liked amor vincit omnia - love conquers all. Chaucer used it very cleverly for his ever so slightly flirtatious nun - she should of course mean the love of God - but did she?
